SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico — Puerto Rican gay boxer Orlando Cruz has proposed marriage to his partner after recently announcing he was gay.

Cruz said Wednesday on Twitter that he has taken an important step in his life and that he wants happiness for both of them.

Puerto Rican gay activist Pedro Julio Serrano, spokesman for the U.S.-based National Gay and Lesbian Task Force, said he will serve as the godfather at the couple’s wedding.

Cruz announced he was gay in October, becoming what is believed to be the first pro boxer to come out as openly homosexual while still competing.

Cruz is a featherweight fighter and is 20-2-1 with 10 knockouts.

    In another news, a professional WWE wrestler, Darren Young, announced at the airport that he is gay.
