An Openly Gay Boxer Will Wear Rainbow Trunks And Pink Gloves In His Title Bout


Pictured below is the outfit that openly gay boxer Orlando Cruz will be wearing on Saturday when he squares off against Orlando Salido for the WBO featherweight title. In addition to his rainbow trunks, Cruz will also be wearing pink gloves to support Breast Cancer Awareness month.


The 32-year old Puerto Rican fighter is the first openly gay athlete in boxing, so props to him for breaking down barriers and not backing down from who he is.
