Pro career[edit]

Also known as Mohammad Abdullaev, Abdullayev turned pro in 2001 and has had limited success. Although he won his first 11 bouts, including a victory over former IBF Lightweight Title holder Philip Holiday, he was KO'd in 2003 by Emmanuel Clottey, although he was winning the fight at the time, and it appeared that he was counted out only because he didn't understand the referee's count (which was in English). He has since lost to Miguel Cotto and Andreas Kotelnik.
