Earlier this year, Philadelphia boxer Yusaf Mack—who has 10 kids and is engaged to be married to a woman—found himself short on cash. So according to a recent interview that he did with the Philadelphia Daily News, he agreed to star in an adult film after someone reached out to him on Facebook and offered him a role in one. He took a train from Philly to New York City, went to a spot in the Bronx, and made his XXX debut before heading back home with $4,500 in his pocket.
If the story ended there, it’d be a pretty wild tale. Mack spent more than a decade boxing and amassed a 31-8-2 record before retiring last year, so the idea of him starring in an adult film to make a few thousand dollars is crazy. But the story has a twist that makes it even crazier.
Earlier this month, Mack was making his way through Philly when he noticed several people acting strangely around him. And he claims that, a short time later, one of his friends told him that a snippet of his adult film had been released. That snippet reportedly showed him engaging in sexual acts with two men. He tried to deny that it was him, but eventually, his friends convinced him otherwise, and he admitted that it was him in the film.
But while doing so, Mack also claimed that he didn’t willingly participate in the film with the other men. He told the Daily News that, when he arrived in the Bronx to shoot the film, there were women on the set. To prepare himself for it, he took “a pill and a shot of vodka” that were given to him. And according to him, the next thing he remembers is being back in Philly on a train.
“I don’t remember getting on the train,” he told the Daily News.
Mack also told the Daily News that he is heterosexual.
“My whole life, I’ve been what they call a whoremonger,” he said. “I love females. The only time I touch a man is when I’m in the ring fighting.”
Mack says he’s now going to attempt to take legal action against the adult film company that hired him, but so far, he has been unable to get in contact with them. You can read the entire Daily News story here.
