Bulgarian heavyweight boxer Kubrat Pulev has been caught up in a storm of controversy in recent days following an interview that took place with a female reporter last weekend.

Pulev was boxing on a Top Rank card last weekend in the US in a bout he won against Bogdan Dinu by KO.

However this interview and what transpired on camera afterwards has become the main story of the fight:

Following the above the female reporter has now held a news conference today and gone public fully with her version of events of allegedly what happened during and after the interview — as well as indicating that she has hired a lawyer to pursue Mr. Pulev legally:

Currently Pulev holds a professional boxing record of 27-1-14KO and is in line as a mandatory contender for current heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua.

Joshua next takes on Jarrell Miller on June 1st.
