Kryklia tested negative for COVID-19. However, he is under quarantine after coming into close contact with an individual who tested positive on 27 November.

While Aliakbari tested positive for COVID-19 prior to his fight, serological tests showed that this was due to a past infection. He has been discharged from hospital but will not participate in tonight’s event as an added precaution.
