He is not retired. He is in the middle of his career as a man who takes and gives punches!  He is an amazingly courageous athlete.  He needs to be celebrated for this!


Cruz, 31, the first openly gay fighter, released a statement on Wednesday calling himself a "proud gay man."
"I've been fighting for more than 24 years and as I continue my ascendant career, I want to be true to myself," Cruz said. "I want to try to be the best role model I can be for kids who might look into boxing as a sport and a professional career. I have and will always be a proud Puerto Rican. I have always been and always will be a proud gay man."
Yes, Orlando.  You should be very proud!! I know I am very proud of you!!  The LGBT community owes you a huge debt of gratitude!
