Boxing reporter Jenny SuShe has announced that she plans to take legal action against Kubrat Pulev after the Bulgarian heavyweight forcibly kissed her during a live interview.

The incident took place following Pulevs knockout victory over Bogdan Dinu in Costa Mesa, California at the weekend and, during a press conference on Thursday, SuShe also accused the 37-year-old of grabbing her buttocks.

It came after SuShe asked Pulev whether he was considering fighting British heavyweight Tyson Fury in his next bout.

Pulev dismissed the ferocious backlash to the video and refused to apologise for his behaviour, claiming that he and the Vegas Sports Daily reporter are close friends.

However, SuShe has rubbished Pulevs comments and reportedly wants the Bulgarians licence suspended and for him to be sanctioned.

On March 22 I met Kubrat Pulev for the first time ever. I was there for the weigh in. I asked him if we could do an interview for Vegas Sports Daily and he said “yes”. We did a pre-fight interview, SuShe said.

The next day, March 23, after the fight between Kubrat and Bogdan I asked Kubrat for a post-fight interview and he said “yes”.

I started the interview and mid-interview he grabbed my face and kissed me. I was immediately shocked, embarrassed and I didnt know how to respond.

Next I walked to a table to put my items into a backpack. He grabbed both of my buttocks and squeezed with both of his hands. Then he walked away without saying anything to me and laughed.

It made me feel uncomfortable and frustrated that Kubrat Pulev would treat me in such an unprofessional manner.

I did not encourage or consent to Mr Pulev grabbing my face, kissing me or grabbing my backside. I was there covering the event as a professional member of the press.

Kissing a woman on her lips without her consent and grabbing her is not acceptable.

? WHAT THE ….! ?
