Heavyweight contender Kubrat Pulev kissed reporter Jenny Sushe in exclusive interview after his victory over Bogdan Dinu.
The Bulgarian didn’t expect this reaction, but american reporter Sushe seeks justice for what she describes as the “unacceptable” behaviour of Pulev without her consent.
It didn’t seem likely to be taken this far.
Here it is the statement of Sushe:
“March 22nd, 2019 I was at the Hangar, OC event center in Costa Mesa, California, when I met Kubrat Pulev for the first time ever,” tells Sushe.
“I was there for the weigh in. I asked him if we could do an interview for Vegas Sports Daily. He said “Yes”. We did a pre-fight interview.
“The next day, March 23rd, 2019 after the fight between Kubrat and Bogdan Dinu, I asked Kubrat for a post-fight interview. He said “Yes”.
“I conducted the interview in a backstage area inside his tent. I started the interview. Mid-interview, he grabbed my face and kissed me. I was immediately shocked and embarrassed, and didn’t know how to respond.
“Next, I walked to the table to put my items in my 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 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.”
