A woman who opted to remain anonymous accused former heavyweight boxing champion Mike Tyson of sexual assault in an explosive court filing, RadarOnline.com has learned, claiming the incident took place sometime in the early 1990s.

The alleged victim is seeking $5 million in damages, filing her docs in Albany, New York, this month under the state's Adult Survivors Act, which gives individuals a one-year window to file lawsuits over assaults that happened years ago.

The woman's attorney, Darren Seilback, stated in a separate filing that an investigation into her allegations has determined they appear to be "highly credible."

Before the lawsuit, Tyson was previously convicted of raping Desiree Washington, a 1992 Miss Black America pageant, for which he served three years behind bars.

In his book Undisputed Truth, the famed athlete denied ever sexually assaulting her.

"I did not rape Desiree Washington," he wrote in one excerpt. "She knows it, God knows it, and the consequences of her actions are something that she's got to live with for the rest of her life."
