George Floyd; Anthony Joshua Joins Protest

protesters were the “vaccine” to the “virus” of

World heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua
told a Black Lives Matter march on Saturday
“The virus I am referring to is called racism,” he
said, comparing its effects to the damage done
by COVID-19.

“How long
are we going to allow racism to spread through
our communities?”the British boxer asked.

Worldwide protests under the banner of Black
Lives Matter took place Saturday in response to
the death of George Floyd, a black American
man who died in Minneapolis last month while
being arrested by police officers.
the 30-
year-old Joshua told a rally in his home town of
Watford. “You are the vaccine, I am the vaccine”.

Joshua was on crutches at times on Saturday
and was also seen wearing a knee brace, but a
spokesperson insisted that was just a
“precautionary measure”.
Joshua, the reigning WBA, IBF and WBO title-
holder, felt a “slight twinge” in his left knee in a
training session earlier this week.
But his camp insisted there was no cause for
alarm. “Anthony felt a slight twinge in his knee whilst
training,” the spokesperson said.
“The brace is a precautionary measure on the
advice of physios. It will be further checked by
his doctors but there is no immediate concern.”

Joshua was due to defend his belts against
Kubrat Pulev at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on
June 20 only for the bout to be postponed
because of the coronavirus pandemic.

Killing a person outright is unforgivable, but
stripping them of their human rights, oppressing
them, mocking them, insulting them, placing
glass ceilings above them… is just a slower way
of killing them and taking the life out of their
soul. he said.
