Anthony Joshua goes out to protest despite his injury joins #BlackLivesMatter movement
The World Boxing Champion Anthony Joshua was seen with the protesters where he even read a poem written by a friend to address the issue.
Joining the protest on Saturday 7, June 2020, Joshua was out with clutches due to injury he sustain in recent training.
Black Lives Matter is a movement which came up after the death of George Floyd to fight against racism on blacks.
The boxer who wore leg brace also had a black hoodie on which had “Black Lives Matter” written on it.
Anthony, who themed racism as a “pandemic” says the pandemic was out of control of which they can not sit back and remain silent anymore.
In his words, Anthony said :
“We can no longer sit back and remain silent on these senseless, unlawful killings and sly racism on another human being – based on what?
Only their skin color,
We need to speak out in peaceful demonstrations –
just like today, so well done Watford.
“We must not use a demonstration for selfish motives and turn it into rioting and looting.”
