Former heavyweight champion and boxing legend George Foreman is facing a pending sexual assault lawsuit according to reports. Two women are claiming that Foreman sexually abused them in the 1970s. The former champ denies the allegations and say the women are extorting him.

“Over the past six months,” Foreman said, “two women have been trying to extort millions of dollars each from me and my family. They are falsely claiming that I sexually abused them over 45 years ago in the 1970s.”
“I adamantly and categorically deny these allegations. The pride I take in my reputation means as much to me as my sports accomplishments, and I will not be intimidated by baseless threats and lies.”
