WBO #1 featherweight Orlando Cruz (20-2-1, 10 KOs) makes his first stop on today’s New York City media day tour La Mega radio station. Boxing’s first openly gay fighter also has a workout scheduled for the Mendez Boxing Gym. Cruz, a member of Puerto Rico’s 2000 Olympic team, is in his final weeks of intense training for his first world title shot against former two-time featherweight champion Orlando “Siri” Salido (39-12-2, 27 KOs) for the vacant World Boxing Organization (WBO) featherweight title on the October 12 Timothy Bradley vs. Juan Manuel Márquez WBO welterweight championship pay-per-view undercard in Las Vegas.
