Claiming that he sexually assaulted them when they were minors in the 1970s, two women have filed lawsuits against the former boxer George Foreman.

Civil lawsuit copies filed Wednesday in Los Angeles Superior Court state that the two women, then 13 and 16, respectively, allege that Foreman had sexual intercourse with them.

The women, who are now in their sixties and who are only known by their pseudonyms in the lawsuit, are suing for sexual battery and intentional psychiatric injury.

The lawsuits do not mention Foreman, who is 73 years old. The accused, however, is described as a heavyweight boxer who would be inducted into the International Boxing Hall of Fame if he were still alive today and who would have been born in or around 1949 and who would have defeated Joe Frazier in 1973 and Muhammad Ali in 1974.

“Foreman said in a statement provided to USA TODAY Sports that “two women have been trying to extort millions of dollars from me and my family over the past six months.” They’ve been saying for 45 years that I sexually abused them in the ’70s, which is a lie. This is a complete and utter falsehood, and I will not be bullied or silenced by threats or lies. My faith and trust in God have been and will continue to be my compass. With the help of my legal team, I intend to expose my accusers’ plot in its entirety and mount a vigorous defense.”

Foreman is accused of sexually assaulting one of the women who was between the ages of “15-16” at the time. The lawsuit claims that this victim “had no ability or legal capacity to consent to the aforementioned sexual acts.”

According to the complaint, Foreman sexually assaulted the plaintiff at a hotel and an apartment in Los Angeles County when he was over the age of 23.

According to the lawsuit, the woman claimed to have met Foreman when she was 9 years old and that her father was a boxing manager and longtime adviser to Foreman.

According to the lawsuit, Foreman threatened the woman’s father’s job if he didn’t comply with his demands, and then he allegedly told the woman to undress and orally copulated with her.

The second woman claimed in the lawsuit that she was the daughter of an Oakland boxer and that Foreman began grooming her when she was 8 years old by taking her out for ice cream.

According to the lawsuit, the woman was abused sexually beginning when she was 13 years old, and this included sexual intercourse beginning when she was 15 years old. At these ages, the woman “had no ability or legal capacity to consent to the aforementioned acts.” The woman claimed she was abused until she was 16 years old.
