The 36-year-old American professional boxer Yuasf Mack has come out of the closet completely. In an interview, he admitted being guilty of creating a web of lies, and that from now on, he only wants to be truthful. Mack was in the news before when it was revealed that he had participated in a gay porn, but denied being gay.

He claimed being drugged and ending up in a gay porn. Later, he announced he was bisexual, but retracted this statement and confessed being gay.

The lies surrounding his homosexuality surfaced after he claimed having lived with a woman for several years, fathering her ten children. In an interview with HipHollywood, Mack says that his lies will be a thing of the past. He also openly admitted not being attracted to masculine men but to feminine types, and that he would prefer a relationship with a transgender women who did not complete the transition.

 Emile GriffithHowever, Mack is not the first pro boxer that is gay. A film about the life of bisexual pro boxer Emile Griffith is in the making. This African-American boxer was known for his bisexuality and for beating to death a truly homophobic boxer in the ring. This happened in a live and worldwide broadcast in 1962.

Griffith only came out in 2005 and died in 2013 at 75. Orlando Cruz is another pro boxer who came out in 2012 as the first pro boxer from Puerto Rico. In 2013 he made the news again when he married his boyfriend.
