“Racism Is A Virus” Anthony Joshua Says As He Joins Black Lives Matter Protest.


Heavyweight boxing champion Anthony Joshua described racism as a “pandemic” when he addressed protesters at a “Black Lives Matter” protest demonstration.

Wearing a black hoodie with the movement’s name on the front, the WBA, WBO and IBF world champion read a poem and spoke in front of hundreds of people in his home town of Watford.

“The virus has been declared a pandemic,” Joshua said.

“This is out of control. And I’m not talking about Covid-19. The virus I’m talking about is called racism.”

“We stand united against a virus which has been instrumental in taking lives, taking lives of the young, old, rich, poor; a virus which is unapologetic and spreads across all sectors.” He added.

At the march Joshua walked with crutches and also used a scooter after he felt a “twinge” in his left knee during training this week.
