Philadelphia boxer Yusaf Mack was caught up in the struggle last week after a gay porn video featuring him and two other men went public. After initially denying his involvement and claims of being drugged, Mack has come out as bisexual and retracted his earlier denial.

Mack released a statement regarding the film he participated in, admitting that he willingly made the choice and was not drugged and drunk when was filmed in the porn movie. The company he filmed for, DawgPoundUSA, threatened a lawsuit over Mack’s now false claims.

Mack and his media team have been in damage control mode, and it appears the pugilist is on the way to attempting to piece back together his personal life.

From Black Sports Online:

“This is an issued public apology from my heart. I want to address a few situations with the first being the false claims I made about being drugged during the Dog Pound adult film. I have never spoke negatively about the company that produced the film although the claim to have been given a drug by someone during set was a lie. I was completely aware and fully conscious during the film.

The second situation, which further explain the first, concerns my lifestyle. I did participate in the adult film because at the time I needed money but also because I am a bisexual man. Meaning I enjoy safely being intimate with whomever I choose.

Lastly I would like to address the reason I lied. My life was completely destroyed once it had been outed that I participated in a gay film. I selfishly tried to cover the truth and remain in denial, rather than accept the fact that I was leading a double life secretly.

As part of Mack’s media strategy, he’s scheduled to interview with the Fox 29 station in his hometown this week according to BSO.
