DawgPoundUSA.com has come out swinging after a Philadelphia man claimed that someone at the online porn site drugged him and filmed him engaged in a same-sex threesome.

Earlier this month, Yusaf Mack, 35, a retired boxer who won several world championships, claimed that he had no memory of shooting a same-sex porn scene until people told them they saw him in one.

Mack claimed that he'd seen an anonymous ad on Facebook looking for actors for what he believed was a straight porn film. The father of 10 told Philly.com that since he was strapped for cash, he responded. He was given an address to an apartment in the Bronx, N.Y., and when he arrived he saw naked women milling about.

"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."

Mack claims that he remembers nothing about the shoot. He says that his first memory after the shoot was of being on a train back to Philadelphia with $4,500 in his pocket. Mack claimed that he didn't remember the company's name, the apartment where the video was shot or his Facebook password, so he couldn't get back into his account to try to retrieve the messages.

On Friday the folks at the gay-porn site, which features African-American men, issued a statement to Gawker in an attempt to clear their name and added that they were considering legal action against Mack. (A writer for Gawker watched the video and detailed all of the graphic encounters. You can read it at that Gawker link, but be warned: The writer pulls no punches. Pardon the pun.)

In the statement obtained by Gawker, the website calls Mack's claims "slanderous":

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 website maintains that Mack was fully aware of what was planned when he arrived on the set that day.
