He's worn a rainbow kilt before, but now Orlando Cruz is really showing his true colors in the ring.

The featherweight contender will fight for his first world title this Saturday when he battles Orlando Salido at the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas. Making a very bold and eye-catching statement for LGBT rights, Yahoo Sports reports that he'll do it in rainbow-colored trunks and a matching ring jacket that he designed with Everlast.

Orlando, who is set to marry boyfriend Jose Manuel on Nov. 16, made history last year when he became the first professional boxer to come out as gay while still competing.

He'll complete his look with pink trim and gloves to show support for Breast Cancer Awareness month.

See the ensemble below.
