‘The Eagle’ retired from combat sports with an amazing undefeated record of 29-0. He is a prominent name in the sport and after he hanged his gloves, many fans have been wanting to see a glimpse of the fighter one last time.

However, the Russian made a promise to his mother that he won’t continue fighting after the death of his father. Even though ‘The Eagle’ received several big offers for a boxing crossover against the star Floyd Mayweather, he stuck to his promise.

Nurmagomedov even denied a huge offer of over $100 million dollars for the same, per his manager, Ali Abdelaziz. That said, the return of the Russian fighter seems never impossible, as he will never go beyond his promise and stick to his principles.

What are your thoughts on the undefeated fighter? Let us know in the comments below.
