Cruz says on Twitter that he has taken an important step in his life and 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, says he’ll attend 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.
