Yusaf Mack’s Tale of the Tape

By Ted Sares on October 27, 2015
Yusaf Mack’s Tale of the Tape
Mack says he is planning a lawsuit but he's not sure who is responsible or who to sue.

An adult film company (DawgPoundUSA.com) contacted him on Facebook to extend an offer to act in one of their videos…

“I think, ‘It’s about to go down.’ I needed a drink or something…They gave me a pill and a shot of vodka. I took the pill down with the vodka.”—Yusaf Mack

“This is the beginning of the end.”—Devon Alexander

I once witnessed Colombian bomber Alejandro “Naco” Berrio plant a kiss on Mack before he (Naco) dispatched him. It happened in the sixth with 1:41 to go. Berrio bizarrely planted a kiss on the top of Yusaf’s skull and then immediately landed several sharp punches. A new “kiss and punch “combination if you will.

Mack retired from the ring last year after losing badly to Cory Cummings in a six-rounder.

It now appears Yusaf, a father of 10 who is engaged to be married (to a woman), has gotten himself involved in more than just kisses. With Yusaf reportedly under financial duress (he has lost his last four fights), an adult film company (DawgPoundUSA.com) contacted him on Facebook to extend an offer to act in one of their videos. Mack says he agreed, but says he thought it was to be a heterosexual adult film. The actual video Mack engaged in, either knowingly or not, is reported to be a “graphic” threesome between Mack and two other men.

Mack (31-8-2) swears that he is not attracted to men: He states: “All my real friends who really know me, know I like females. I’m still me. You’ve got to realize that the ones that are not really talking to me are the ones that probably have skeletons in their closets. My whole life, I’ve been what they call a whoremonger. I love females.”

A report in BoxingScene states in part that Mack “became aware of the video when numerous friends began avoiding him. One friend pulled him aside and informed him that an adult video was circulating on the internet, and the video showed Mack engaging in explicit sexual acts with two men.” See: http://www.boxingscene.com/?m=show&opt=printable&id=97427

Mack says he is planning a lawsuit but he’s not quite sure who is responsible or who to sue. He did admit, however, of having $4,500 in his pocket.

Wonder what Devon Alexander has to say about this turn of events?

    Good one Sid. How about “Tail (sic) of the tape”?

  4. Sid Melton 02:33am, 10/30/2015

    Another obvious but good title would have been Big Mack Attack.

    DawgPoundUSA.com, offered this take when asked for a statement of Mack’s version of events.

    “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 tattoo trend seems to be fading somewhat (yes, pun intended), but too late for Mack.  Speaking of expenses, that $4,500 ain’t gonna help him much, not with 10 kids to feed.  Talk about selling your soul for a mess of pottage (or whatever they used as a lubricant).

    Notice the guy wearing the dog tags.  I mean, how clichéd can you get?  I’m surprised the other one isn’t wearing a sailor’s cap, with Yusaf in a hard hat.

    Maybe he wouldn’t be so strapped if he didn’t spend so much getting inked up.

    Hate to break it to you guys but the Porn industry is tough business and almost all guys do gay films to make more money!  yes that’s right all the guys in porn go both ways.  The Industry is tough.  I knew someone that did it, I also knew someone that did the lights for Porn shoots.

    During Shoots drugs are used to get guys to stay hard for very long periods of time so they can make the shoots.  The filming is pretty damn stressful.

    Sounds like Yusaf became quite desperate here.

    FD, Can you elaborate a bit, especially about the ending.?

    Just downloaded it through my Amazon Fire account…I’ve seen worse films. Had a happy ending.

    Il bacio della morte—yes, that’s what it turned out to be.

    Excellent title, by the way.

    Not only porn, but of the homosexual variety.  I mean, not even trannies.  The ultimate in self-degradation.  Too bad, because I always liked “Mack Attack” (a moniker that perhaps now takes on a rather different meaning), a good boxer, though one who never lived up to his potency, er, potential.

    In fairness to Yusaf, it’s not impossible that he was drugged.  Drugs and the porn business have always gone hand in hand.  Didn’t Linda Lovelace claim to have been coerced and drugged?  And there rumors that Bambi Woods died of a drug overdose, though her exact fate is unknown.  But even if true, Yusaf doesn’t deny his willingness to appear in porn, which speaks loud and clear not only about his distressing financial situation, but also of his stupidity and depravity.  You have to be both stupid and depraved to do that for a living.  I seem to recall one actress who didn’t know how many seconds are in a minute.  Dana Vespoli appears to be an exception.  Depraved, yes, but reasonably intelligent.  And very hot.  Or so I’ve been told.

    As for the Berrio kiss, of which I didn’t know, perhaps it was his interpretation of the Mafia’s Il bacio della morte, the kiss of death.  Yeah, let’s say that.
