After coming out last year as the first openly gay boxer, Orlando Cruz is now sharing with everyone his feelings about his partner Jose Manuel. The featherweight fighter posted a video on Facebook asking longtime boyfriend Jose Manuel for marriage. Speaking in Spanish, Cruz says, "Now more than ever that I have an important fight coming up for the World Championship, I want to tell you that you are a very special person in my life. I am a little nervous, but I want to tell you and share with your friends and my friends if you want to marry me. I want you to be part of my life and me be part of yours." Jose Manuel also responded via social media, "I accept marrying you because I love you and adore you. Yes I do want to marry you." The proposal received support from family, friends and fans.
