orLet no one say that out featherweight boxer Orlando Cruz isn’t taking full advantage of the power of his social media presence. The Puerto Rican-born athlete has posted a tasteful nude photo on his Facebook page, according to Latin website ElNuevoDia. We’re not sure of the reason for the photo, but we’re not prone to question anyone’s attempt to create art.

This isn’t the first time Cruz has used Facebook to get an important message out. Earlier this month Cruz proposed marriage to longtime boyfriend José Manuel by posting a video on his Facebook page. NBCLatino translated Cruz’ proposal as:

I wanted to tell you how much I need you and how much I miss you. I know you are a person that means a lot to me and that supports my career and respects it which is very important, but above all you are always there giving me that push that I need. Now more than ever that I have an important fight coming up for the World Championship. I want to tell you that you are a very special person in my life. I am a little nervous, but I want to tell you and share with your friends and my friends if you want to marry me. I want you to be part of my life and me be part of yours.
