Orlando Cruz: Salido Had His Time, Now It's My Time

By Miguel Angel Cebreros, notifight.com

On the 12th of October at the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas, two boxers will meet in a high stakes contest for the vacant world featherweight championship of the World Boxing Organization (WBO). Former three time world champion Orlando "Siri" Salido (39-12-2, 27 KOs) of Mexico will face Orlando "El Fenomeno" Cruz (20-2-1, 10 KOs) of Puerto Rico. The card will be headlined by a welterweight fight between Timothy Bradley and Juan Manuel Marquez.

Cruz wants to become the first openly gay boxer to capture a world title.

"[Salido] already had his time and glory - now it is my time, I will be world champion, that's what I'm working hard for. I will fight for the Latino people, for the Puerto Rican people living in Puerto Rico, and the Latin people living in the United States. This is a very good fight for me. I respect Salido, but I'm coming in there to win," Cruz said.
