They were originally scheduled to fight February 13, but Vlasov tested positive for COVID-19 prior to the weigh-in, forcing a postponement.

The undercard on ESPN+ includes heavyweights Jared “The Real Big Baby” Anderson, Trey Lippe Morrison (16-0, 16 KOs), and Jeremiah Milton (2-0, 2 KOs) in separate bouts.
