Allakhverdiev dropped M'baye in the second and eighth rounds. The assault never let up and referee Luis Pabon ended M'baye's punishment 2:27 into the 11th.

Allakhverdiev won his first defense of the WBA title he won against Joan Guzman last November with another stoppage. The Russian improved to 19-0 with nine knockouts.

M'baye, the Frenchman who held the WBA belt in 2006-07, dropped to 40-5-1.
