Nigeria-British world heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua has described racism as a “pandemic” at the Black Lives Matter protest in UK.
The 30-year-old, addressed hundreds of people in his home town of Watford on Saturday and admitted racism exits everywhere.
He said racism is out of control said the blacks are united to fight the course.
“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 said.
The protest was one of several across the world on Saturday following the death of American George Floyd.
Floyd, 46, died while being arrested on 25 May in Minneapolis. The four officers involved have since been charged over the death, which sparked days of protest in the US and Black Lives Matter demonstrations across the world.
