Orlando Cruz announces that he's gay??? Wow! I mean I can't really be surprised in this era we live in today, but can you imagine if this guy gets to an elite level and starts beating top notch opposition? He'll have more problems than President Obama in this per-dominantly heterosexual sport. I mean seeing Cotto on 24/7 share a bed with dude and play with each others "dooky shoot" (as Mayweather put it) is one thing, but having an openly gay fighter on 24/7???

Anyways I'd watch the fight but you wouldn't catch me rooting for a gay fighter to win it lol, nope.

I don't get it, I don't have a problem with it. I mean people support de la hoya and he was a cross dresser, I don't care what a persons preference is in as long as they can fight.

And if anything if this guy gets to the top being gay would probably help him sell more.

I'm wondering... what difference does it makes? None. For fuck sakes, people support weight cheats and media champions with dozens of contract stipulations. Even cheaters.

A good fighter is a good fighter gay or not. To be accepted by the public though he will have to be exceptional in the ring, strong mentally, and have thick skin.

A better question is will other fighters be willing to fight an openly gay opponent? That will be the determining factor if a fighter decides to come out of the closet. I'm sure boxing has a homosexual in the sport now who is not willing to go public.

Of course,

What a boxer does in the ring has no barring to me with regards to their sexual orientation.

I don't care about the sexual orientation or whatever else. If you box on whatever level you have my respect no matter who you share your bed with.
