British heavyweight boxer Anthony Joshua took part in a rally against racism in his hometown, Watford. About it reports Reuters.
The athlete appealed to the participants of the London protests and read out a poem written by his friend. He stated that racism is a new epidemic that is out of control.
“We must speak out in peaceful demonstrations. Just like today, so good job, Watford. We don’t need to use the protests for their own selfish motives and turn them into riots and looting”, he added.
Joshua has a championship belt version of the world Boxing organization (WBO), International Boxing Federation (IBF), world Boxing Association (WBA) with the prefix Super and International Boxing organization (IBO).
