A Bulgarian boxer who grabbed a female broadcaster's face and kissed her on the lips during a post-fight interview was suspended until July by the California State Athletic Commission on Tuesday following tearful testimony by the interviewer. Kubrat Pulev, a heavyweight contender known as "The Cobra," was also ordered during a commission hearing to attend sexual harassment prevention classes and pay a $2,500 fine before he can fight again in the state of California.
