World HeavyWeight Boxing Champion Anthony Joshua says ‘racism is a pandemic’

Britain’s world heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua described racism as a “pandemic” when he addressed protesters at a Black Lives Matter march.
The 30-year-old, wearing a knee brace as a “precautionary measure”, 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.
“The IBF, WBA and WBO world champion added: “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.”
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.
The protest was one of several across England during the past week following the death of American George Floyd.
