Former James Bond actor George Lazenby says he will fight Pam Shriver's claim for custody over the couple's three young children.

Shriver, a former tennis star, has filed for divorce from Lazenby and cited "irreconcilable differences" for ending their six-year marriage.

The 68-year-old Lazenby said Sunday through a spokesman that he loves his children "very much" and will seek sole legal and physical custody. Shriver has said she will seek custody with supervised visits for Lazenby.

The 46-year-old Shriver won 22 Grand Slam doubles titles and has served as a tennis commentator since retiring.

Lazenby starred as James Bond in "On Her Majesty's Secret Service."
