Khabib Mevlidinovich Allakhverdiev (Russian: Хабиб Мевлидинович Аллахвердиев; born 8 December 1982) is a Russian professional boxer of Lezgin descent.[1][2] He held the WBA (Regular) and IBO super-lightweight titles from 2012 to 2014, and as an amateur won a bronze medal in the lightweight division at the 2005 World Championships.

Amateur career[edit]

Allakhverdiev won bronze at the 2005 World Amateur Boxing Championships in the lightweight division, losing to eventual winner Yordenis Ugás.

Professional career[edit]

He turned professional in 2007 and was promoted by Warriors Boxing and Top Rank. His biggest accomplishments came in 2012, when he first won the IBO junior welterweight title against Kaizer Mabuza, knocking him out in four rounds. The following year he stopped then-undefeated Joan Guzmán to win the WBA super lightweight title. One defense was made of both titles in 2013, when Allakhverdiev defeated Souleymane M'baye via late-rounds stoppage. In 2014, Allakhverdiev suffered his first professional loss in a closely contested bout against Jessie Vargas, which went the full twelve-round distance.
