Orlando and Jorge both wired out today at the Kissimmee Boxing Gym. Cruz invited Orlando Telemundo Reporter Anna Jurka into the ring for some sparring. She obliged.

Jorge Pazos: “I have to win whether he is gay or not. But I don’t think about that. He made a decision and I respect him for it. That is outside the ring. It is different inside the ring”

Are you worried about losing to a gay man and going home to hecklers in Mexico? “I don’t think about that. I can’t think about that. He is a good boxer, an Olympian.”

Orlando Cruz: “I do feel a little bit of pressure because of all of this (the media attention). The first few days were like a bucket of cold water (dumped over me). But it is something that I had to do. I’m not doing it for ratings. I answer all the questions now so that I can then concentrate on my (boxing) career, which is what’s important for me.” (more…)
