Veki,

Thanks for your question. There is no denying is a set phrase that means that something is true because it's a (proven) fact.

No. You need a reference. In this case the denial refers to 'it'.

There is no real explanation beyond the fact that 'admit', 'assign' and 'decry' do not carry a definition which matches here.

Hi,

'There's no denying it' has the sense in the test of a conversational expression indicating: You are absolutely right/That is the absolute truth.
