The 38-year-old appeared in front of the California State Athletic Commission on Tuesday to address the March 23 incident when he kissed reporter Jenny Sushe during a post-fight interview.
CSAC had suspended Pulev indefinitely following the incident but when the boxer faced the Commission in person on Tuesday, they agreed to reinstate him on July 22 if he completes a sexual harassment training course, according to TMZ.
During the hearing, the CSAC commissioner lectured Pulev about the incident, telling him that he needs to understand why his actions are unacceptable and dangerous.
Pulev said he understood and wants to get back to work fighting as soon as possible.
He was later ordered to pay a $2,500 fine within 6 months from the incident and if he commits any similar offenses in the future, he could face a lifetime ban in California.
