Olympic Boxer Comes Out As Gay


posted 05 October 2012


When you were a kid did you ever watch sport with your dad, pretending to be interested but really you were picturing all the men naked and sweaty…Sat on your face. Well I did and boxing was one of those sports that really got me horned up. Those butch guys fighting semi-nude, sodden in manly sweat. Oh how I longed to rip those silky little shorts off and have a nosh. Never did I ever entertain the idea that some of them might actually be queer. Well today I’m one step closer to my sex dream being a reality… It would seem it’s not just the boxing ‘ring’ Orlando Cruz has a love for after he came out the closet today.  This makes him the first ever professional gay boxer in history. Thank you Orlando, Thank you!   

 The Puerto Rican featherweight has said that he is indeed a proud gay man. You might say it’s Cruz by name Cruise by nature. Oh Snap! Yes I did go there!

 The 31-year-old released a statement to the media saying:

 “I’ve been fighting for more than 24 years and as I continue my ascendant career, I want to be true to myself.

 “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.”

 Arrh, doesn’t he sound sweet, what a lovely bum-diver to add to our growing gay sporting arsenal. I don’t know if I want him to sit on my face, thus bringing my sex dream into fruition, or be my new gay best friend!  

 Cruz has been boxing since he was seven and has won seven national titles and seven international gold medals.

He turned pro shortly after the Sydney Olympic Games and won his first professional fight on 15 December 2000 against Alfredo Valdez.

 It’s really great to see someone with balls (big sexy ones I bet) speak out and not worry about how this might affect their professional career. With boxing being big on image this will give his rivals something to taunt him about publically I imagine.

His next fight will be on the 19th October against Jorge Pazos. I know I'll be watching him do his thing in the ring...Probably while I give my own ring a seeing to.

    Gobby Paris Brands Gays Disgusting…Lets Not All Beat Her With Our Shoes Just Yet.

    I shall never forgive America for some of the atrocities its committed over the years, voting in President Bush, not once but TWICE, allowing The Big Bang Theory to run into its forth series, assassinating JFK and giving the world Paris ‘Flange-Face’ Hilton. This girl has eroded the minds of so many poor young kiddies with her work-shy attitude, Party going etiquette and general dunce-esq behaviour. She really is pig shit personified, spraying her stinking faecal matter all over the gaff like a farmer dusting his field with manure. This time the gay community were treated the rather shallow thoughts and ravings of this she-devil. Now, before we all attempt to cave her head in with our dildos, I’m not totally convinced she is to blame here…As much as it pains me to admit it.

    Buffy Introduces New Gay Vampire Slayer

    As a greasy, hormonal teenager I spent days masturbating furiously to the underwear section in my mum’s Argos Additions catalogue. In order to mask the sound of this sordid crime I would stick BBC 2 on full blast and lock the door of my bedroom. At 6pm every day I would crack one off, paying no attention to Star Trek, Sliders or whatever other Sci-Fi guff BBC2 decided to spew out at this time. It wasn’t until Buffy hit the Thursday 6pm slot that I broke from this sticky ritual, closing the Argos catalogue and becoming engrossed (often with my cock still out) in the macabre adventures of this tiny little blonde bird, kicking ass with her camp friends. Now, 15 years later, meet Billy. The Gay Twink Vampire Slayer.

    EastEnders Only Gay Couple Set To Leave The Show!

    People either love Syed and Christian or want to weigh them down with bricks and toss them into the murky depths of the Thames. But soon they will be a distant memory along with Peggy Mitchell, Mark Fowler and Wellard. Yes, Walford’s answer to Sir Elton and Dave will be leaving the show next year. I assume they will either be fucking off to Portugal to go live with Grant or heading up to Nottingham like so many former Albert Square residents before them.

    Nothing To Declare…Except My Massive Pink Dildo

    An angry gay couple are suing their local airline after their bag was the victim of a rather embarrassing search. The poor American couple, who had safely tucked their favourite little vibrating friend away inside their bag, were shocked to see it taped to the top of their hand luggage, jiggling like a tiny giraffe having a stroke, down the baggage-claim carousel. Typical gays. Cant go anywhere without packing a fucking dildo in case of emergencies.

    MANCHESTER PRIDE: Popping My Canal Sreet Cherry

    This weekend hordes of boozed up, cock hungry gays will be descending upon Manchester. Not to absorb the fine culture the city has to offer (by culture I mean Granada studios and the Arndale Centre) but to celebrate yet another gay pride event…. This year I will be one of those pissed up, cock hungry gays. With London pride proving to be more disappointing than Ridley Scott’s Prometheus, Manchester Pride has a lot riding on its shoulders.
