California boxing officials have suspended Bulgarian Heavyweight contender Kubrat Pulev’s boxing license, after he kissed a female reporter on the lips during an interview. Pulev has been ordered to appear before the California State Athletic Commission to explain why he kissed a reporter on the lips during a post-fight interview.
Jennifer Ravalo, who also goes by the name of Jenny Sueshay is the sports reporter, who was kissed, during the interview over the weekend. Ravalo is a contributor for Vegas Sports Daily. The interview, which ended with a kiss, happened after Pulev knocked out Bogdan Dinu in a match in Costa Mesa, California. Ravalo says she was “a victim of an unwanted, unexpected and unsolicited forceful kiss.” However on Twitter, Pulev called Ravalo, a friend and said, later that night, she joined him and his friends for a post-fight celebration. He also mentioned after the kiss, they both laughed about it and thanked each other. Now, Ravalo has hired celebrity attorney Gloria Allred and she says she felt victimized.
