Former welterweight world titleholder Victor Ortiz pleaded not guilty Wednesday to sexual assault charges, according to the Ventura County District Attorney's Office.
Ortiz, 31, had turned himself in last month and was charged with forcible rape, forcible oral copulation and forcible digital penetration.
A woman had first contacted police in March and said she was sexually assaulted inside a home in Oxnard, California, with Ortiz later identified as the suspect.
After several months of police investigating, the case was presented to the Ventura County District Attorney's Office and a warrant was issued for Ortiz's arrest.
Outside of boxing, Ortiz made a name for himself with a 2013 appearance on ABC's "Dancing With the Stars."
