The largest global sports media property in Asian history, ONE Championship™ (ONE), has just announced that ONE Light Heavyweight Kickboxing World Champion Roman Kryklia and Greco-Roman Wrestling World Champion Amir Aliakbari will be withdrawing from their respective matches at ONE: BIG BANG tonight as a result of COVID-19 safety protocols.
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.
Both Aliakbari and Kryklia tested negative for COVID-19 prior to flying into Singapore.
The bout involving Aliakbari has been removed from the card, while Krylia’s opponent, Murat Aygun, will remain on the card to face Anderson Silva in a light heavyweight kickboxing bout.
The bout between Marat Grigorian and Ivan Kondratev will now be the main event of ONE: BIG BANG.
An atomweight bout between Jihin Radzuan and Bi Nguyen and a featherweight kickboxing clash between Andy Souwer and Zhang Chunyu have also been added to the card.
Below is the complete card and final weight and hydration results.
