Oscar De La Hoya has denied the sexual assault allegations brought against him this week.
The lawsuit filed Monday in Los Angeles County Superior Court alleges that the unidentified woman had a consensual sexual relationship with De La Hoya until he assaulted her at her Pasadena home in November 2017.
De La Hoya's company, Golden Boy Promotions, released a statement Tuesday describing the action as a "frivolous lawsuit" and calling the allegations "completely false."
The Golden Boy Promotions statement suggests that De La Hoya is being extorted.
"Oscar is a very successful businessman, he runs one of the country's leading sports and entertainment companies, making him a prime target," the statement read.
The lawsuit goes into graphic detail in his accusations against De La Hoya, alleging that the former boxing champion was intoxicated at the time he beat the woman. The lawsuit does not specify whether she filed a complaint with the police after the alleged attack, forcing her to take medications for "extreme swelling and pain."
The plaintiff says she went to a hospital after the alleged attack and eventually sought psychological treatment, during which she was diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder. The woman claims that she still has daily symptoms of depression and anxiety.
The woman's lawsuit seeks a jury trial and unspecified damages for alleged sexual assault, gender-based violence, negligence, and intentional imposition of emotional distress.
