    In a lawsuit, Former heavyweight champion George Foreman has been accused of abusing two minor girls in the 1970s.

    The suit was brought to Los Angeles County Superior Court by two women who claim they were introduced to the boxer when they were young, as reported by Yahoo News.

    The plaintiffs, who filed the suit in the name of Gwen H. and Denise S., say their fathers introduced them to Forman, one of whom was his sparring partner. The boxer “groomed” them for sex for a long time before beginning sexual relations with them during their early teens.

    One of the women asserts that Foreman even told her that her father might be fired if she did not give in to Foreman.

    The boxing champion, 73, released a statement earlier this month on the pending lawsuit, according to TMZ.

    “Over the past six months 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,” Foreman told TMZ.

    “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,” he added.

    “I am, and always will be, guided by my faith and trust in God,” Foreman concluded. “I will work with my lawyers to fully and truthfully expose my accusers’ scheme and defend myself in court. I don’t pick fights, but I don’t run away from them either.”

    Foreman claims that the pending suit is part of a plan to take $25 million from his wealth of $300 million.
