Yusaf Mack’s name has been in the news these past couple of weeks for all the wrong reasons. First the Philly boxer was claiming he was “too manly” to have done a homosexual porno on his recognizance, and told the media he was drugged to the point he was forced into the acts caught on tape.

The 35-year-old athlete immediately switched his stance when the gay adult film company DawgPoundUSA threatened to sue Mack for tarnishing their name with thoughts of drug-induced action scenes and he admitted he was indeed bisexual after apologizing to the studio.

Now in a new interview with Philadelphia FOX 29, Mack is digger deeper inside his truth and fully coming out of the closet, in order to free his mind.

“I’m gay. I’m tired of holding it in, it is what it is. I live my life. I’m gay,” the father of 10 told FOX 29’s Quincy Harris. “I was hurt. Like to myself. Then I think about my children, like how am I gonna explain this to my children,” Mack said, “I called a couple of my friends and told them ‘I’m thinking about killing myself.”

The suicidal thoughts have since faded and Mack says he is now “happy.”
