"On the video, after our kiss, we both laughed about it and thanked each other", Pulev said. "There really is nothing more to this".

A sport reporter who was kissed mid-interview by heavyweight boxer Kubrat Pulev has launched legal action against the fighter.

Following the incident, Pulev issued a statement and said Ravalo is a "friend of mine" and laughed the incident off.

Appearing alongside attorney Gloria Allred on Thursday, Ravalo called for an investigation by the California State Athletics Commission and suspension of Pulev's license until the commission's next meeting on May 14 in Los Angeles.

But SuShe claims Pulev's kiss was "disgusting" and left her feeling "humiliated".

However, Pulev contends that he and Ravalo are friends, and he tweeted on Monday: "After the interview, I was so elated, I gave her a kiss".

"I was immediately shocked and embarrassed, and I didn't know how to respond", Ravalo said.

But she said the unwanted advances didn't end there, alleging Pulev assaulted her again as she went to put her belongings inside a backpack after the interview.

"It made me feel uncomfortable and frustrated that Kubrat Pulev would treat me in such an unprofessional manner". I started the interview and mid-interview he grabbed my face and kissed me.

Kubrat Pulev must "demonstrate that he will conform to this principle of respect".

Her arraignment and pretrial conference is set on April 10. "This is not the Philippines I voluntarily chose as my home country". She wants to be treated differently - that can not be done.

'I was there at the event covering the boxing match as a professional member of the press.

Now, it appears that her discomfort with the kiss has grown enough that she is seeking council.

'You may have seen a clip of me kissing a female reporter following an interview after I won my fight Saturday night, ' Pulev said. "I wanted him to be accountable", she added. "Mid-interview he grabbed my face and kissed me".

"Vegas Sports Daily prides itself on being a platform that advocates for and values women and their contribution to our publication and the sports industry itself", the statement said, adding: "We stand firmly behind Ms. Sushe as we continue to resolve this matter".

"I did not remove it [the kiss], and instead I posted it, because I wanted people to see what he had done to me".

Ravalo's representative Allred is a leading women's rights lawyer and has represented clients who have filed lawsuits against the likes of Donald Trump and Tiger Woods.

Allred says she has sent a letter to the state athletic commission. Mr Pulev and I were not friends, and were not in a romantic relationship. "I think this can be considered sexual harassment".

Pulev was due to fight Joshua in October 2017, but had to pull out days before the fight through injury.

The heavyweight contender has one loss in 27 fights as a professional.
