Anthony Joshua joined a Black Lives Matter protest in his hometown of Watford on Saturday afternoon, despite wearing a brace on his left leg and using crutches.
The WBA, IBF and WBO heavyweight champion, wearing a black hoodie bearing the name of the movement, joined hundreds of peaceful protestors following the killing of George Floyd, an unarmed black man in handcuffs, by a white police officer in Minnesota on 25 May.
In a speech shared on Instagram, Joshua 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 colour. (Independent)
