Anthony Joshua has shown his support for the Black Lives Matter, BLM Movement by attending a protest march in his home town.
The WBA, WBO, and IBF World Heavyweight Champion took to the streets of Watford on Saturday, June 6, 2020, to campaign following the controversial death of African-American, George Floyd on May 25th in Minneapolis Minnesota.
He delivered a speech during the march.
“A virus that is not apologetic. A virus that spread across all sectors of our communities, sports, education, churches, entertainment, media, and even the government, not just in the United Kingdom, UK, but across the world. The virus has been declared a pandemic and I am not actually talking about COVID-19. The virus that I am referring to is called racism. How long are we going to allow this spread through our community and affect our lives without using the vaccines you already have in your possession? Me and you. You are the vaccine, I am the vaccine. We need to speak out in peaceful demonstrations just as we use vaccines. We must not use it and turn it to riot and looting.” He said.
The Nigerian born heavyweight boxer used a scooter and clutches to attend the rally as he recovers from a knee injury sustained in training.
