Gabriela has alleged the Brazilian, also 23, attacked her while she was pregnant and left her fearing for her life while they were in an on-off relationship.
She has shared pictures showing her bloodied clothes, sliced fingers and a head wound which were allegedly the aftermath of his actions.
Antony has always strongly denied the accusations against him.
He is the subject of police investigations in Brazil and the UK over the claims.
Manchester United faces growing pressure to drop him from the squad but is so far standing by his side.
The player has already been axed by the Brazil national team.
“I never touched her,” Antony insisted as he last night spoke on Brazilian TV.
He appeared tearful as he defended himself from the allegations in the lengthy interview.
The player said: “I know that many are massacring me but the truth always comes out.”
He admitted the relationship was “turbulent”, that he had become “jealous” and there was “verbal violence”.
“I am 100 per cent sure that I have never touched a woman,” said Antony.
He went on: “What I want most is to show the people that this is who I am. I want to achieve many things.
“I have many goals and many dreams. I want to show who I really am. I dream of returning to the national team and I want to show that Antony is innocent of all this.”
Antony also insisted he has no fears about being axed by Manchester United.
He said: “It’s something that doesn’t cross my mind.”
Manchester United recently froze out Mason Greenwood after he faced allegations.
After facing a backlash as they planned to reintegrate him, the English striker was then sent on loan to Getafe.
United have insisted they are taking the allegations against Antony “seriously” – and said they will not comment further at this stage.
