The 34-year-old native of Perm returned on the ring on December,17 2016 in Yekaterinburg after more than 2-year break and made it very impressive. Seriously lost in rating after ahead-of-time defeat by Denis Shafikov in August 2014, Nugaev proved one more time that it’s early to write him off. Rustam fought with non-defeated that time and promising young fighter Ardie Boyose (17-0, 13 KO for the moment of the bout). Nugaev, who prefers aggressive fight and punches, managed to impose his conditions to the ambitious rival from the Philippines. Russian boxer fought in his usual sharp and attacking manner having won by a knock-out.
On February,18 2017 in Chelyabinsk Rustam Nugaev conducted the defend of his WBC Asian Boxing Council Silver title, having knocked down in the 7th round Feruzbek Yuldashev from Uzbekistan.
