Bulgarian professional boxer Kubrat Pulev has finally issued an apology for forcibly kissing journalist Jenny Sushe during their interview.

The duo was involved in Q&A following Pulev’s 7th-round stoppage of Bogdan Dinu last month, when he forcibly planted a kiss on her lips.

“I am sorry. I’m sorry about what happened (with Jenny Sushe). If I can go back in time, of course I will not do it,” Pulev told 120 minutes.

“Anyway, it’s the experience again which one must go through. I do such things. I’m temperamental and I’ve done it purely out of happiness.

“I can tell my fans it was the euphoria (of winning the fight). The people who sympathize with me will know that if I had to do it all over again – I would not.”

Asked if he would like to change what happened, he said: “If God gave me time to return (I’d change it).

“I’m sorry about that. But the point is, the desire that I have was made with no intention of violence. This kiss was an expression of joy.

“Everybody could interpret it as I was pleased. But it was an expression of joy and happiness. Just an emotion, a strong emotion I can compare with if a person was euphoric, to such an extent.”

Even as the journalist appeared to laugh it off at the time, she later decided to sue Pulev, who had his boxing license suspended saying that was the first time she met Pulev, contrary to what the latter claimed.

A few days later, though, a video of Sushe enjoying with Pulev in the after-party. Later, a video of her giving a lap-dance to one of his team members surfaced online, helping Pulev pull one back ahead of the May 14 hearing.
