Kubrat ordered to complete harassment course.
Kubrat Venkov Pulev is a Bulgarian professional boxer.
He held the European heavyweight title twice between 2012 and 2016, and has challenged once for the unified world heavyweight title in 2014.
As an amateur he won multiple medals at international tournaments, including gold at the 2008 European Championships and bronze at the 2005 World Championships, all in the super-heavyweight division.
In March 2019, after defeating Bogdan Dinu in Costa Mesa, Pulev forcibly kissed a female reporter on the lips during an interview.
The California State Athletic Commission responded by suspending Pulev’s licence.
Pulev has since responded by posting a video taken hours after the incident, without the knowledge of the reporter, showing her suggestively dancing with a member of Pulev’s entourage.
Kubrat ordered to complete sexual harassment course,
in order to be license to fight in California again.
The 38-year-old appeared in front of the California State Athletic Commission on Tuesday to address the March 23 incident when he kissed reporter Jenny Sushe during a post-fight interview.
CSAC had suspended Pulev indefinitely following the incident but when the boxer faced the Commission in person on Tuesday, they agreed to reinstate him on July 22 if he completes a sexual harassment training course, according to TMZ.
During the hearing, the CSAC commissioner lectured Pulev about the incident, telling him that he needs to understand why his actions are unacceptable and dangerous.
Pulev said he understood and wants to get back to work fighting as soon as possible.
He was later ordered to pay a $2,500 fine within 6 months from the incident and if he commits any similar offenses in the future, he could face a lifetime ban in California.
