Professional boxer, yellow discharge from ear, muffled sound. Serious?

i am a professional boxer and i recently flew to Puerto Rico for a boxing match. It has been a little over a week and i have had a lot of water like substance draining from my ear. It had a muffled sound but now my sound is back but the fluid has a tint of yellow and i have to wear cotton balls in my ear all the time now. How serious is this? I have another boxing fight this weekend also.
