yusaf mack*Days after pro boxer Yusaf Mack confessed to being drugged and taking part in a same-sex porn shoot he has no memory of, the website behind the film is firing back in response.

In the following statement obtained by Gawker, DawgPoundUSA.com, a gay-porn site that features African-American men, addressed Mack’s claims while labeling them “slanderous” and alluding to legal action against the athlete:

“DawgPoundUSA.com is a reputable company which has produced high quality videos of men-of-color since 2002. At no time have we ever coerced or drugged any of our models. The claims made by Mr. Mack are false, slanderous, and vehemently denied on our part. We intend to take all legal steps necessary to protect our good name and reputation against these patently false and preposterous claims.”

The Gawker statement is the latest development since Mack revealed his situation with the porn shoot to Philly.com earlier this month. According to the 35-year-old father of 10, he responded to what he believed to be anonymous Facebook ad for a straight porn film.

Strapped for cash, Mack ended up responding to the ad and was given an address to an apartment in the Bronx, N.Y. When he arrived at the apartment he saw naked women on the scene.

“I think, ‘It’s about to go down,’ ” he told Philly.com. “I needed a drink or something. They gave me a pill and a shot of vodka. I took the pill down with the vodka.”

And the rest, unfortunately for him, is history.

As for the shoot, Mack claims t he remembers nothing about it and says his first memory after the shoot was of being on a train back to Philadelphia with $4,500 in his pocket.

With no recollection of the company’s name, the apartment where the video was shot or his Facebook password, Mack couldn’t get back into his account to try to retrieve the messages.

Despite Mack’s claims, DawgPoundUSA.com stated that he was fully aware of what was planned when he arrived on the set that day to shoot the porn film.
