Khabib Allakhverdiev of Dagestan Captures Vacant WBA Title
 Dec 3, 2012

Russian boxer Khabib Allakhverdiev has taken the vacant WBA super-lightweight title, beating Joan Guzman on a technical decision after the Dominican fighter suffered a leg injury, RIA Novosti reports.

Allakhverdiev was awarded the title on split decision when the referee ruled two-time former world champion Guzman could not continue after apparently twisting his knee.

The Dagestan-born fighter retains his unbeaten record, going to 18-0, after handing Guzman (33-1) the first defeat of his professional career. Allakhverdiev registered the fight's only knockdown in the third round, connecting with two rights and a left hook.

The belt was vacated after Argentine boxer Marcos Maidana moved up a weight division. Allakhverdiev unifies the title with his IBO light-welterweight crown, which was also on the line in Sunrise, Florida, on Friday.
