- Kubrat Pulev’s boxing license was suspended by the California State Athletic Commission
- This is because of the allegations that he forcibly kissed a Fil-Am reporter named Jenny Sushe and grabbed her behind
- A video of the controversial kiss went viral online
Kubrat Pulev, a Bulgarian heavyweight boxer, is currently in hot waters for “forcibly” kissing a Filipino-American reporter named Jennifer Ravalo, also known as Jenny Sushe, and allegedly grabbing her behind.
The California State Athletic Commission suspended Pulev’s boxing license because of the allegations, as reported by ABS-CBN News (authored by TJ Manotoc).
A video of the controversial kiss went viral online, while the incident involving Pulve grabbing Ravalo’s behind allegedly happened at the after party, CNN reported (authored by Dakin Andone).
Pulev can be seen in the video getting interviewed by Ravalo after defeating Bogdan Dinu in their heavyweight match.
He then kissed her on the lips when she asked him about fighting heavyweight elite boxer Tyson Fury in the future.
The boxer denied the allegation that she forcibly kissed Ravalo, saying that the two of them are friends.
However, Ravalo denied Pulev’s statement, stating that he forcibly kissed and grabbed her without her consent.
"I did not encourage or consent to Mr. Pulev grabbing my face, kissing me, or grabbing my backside.
"I was there at the event covering the boxing match as a professional member of the press. Kissing a woman on her lips without her consent and grabbing her is not acceptable,” she said in her official statement.
Kubrat Pulev is considered by boxing experts as one of the 10 best heavyweight boxers in the world today.
He has a professional boxing record of 27 wins, 14 KOs, with one loss from his fight with all-time great boxer Wladimir Klitschko.
