Yesterday, Anthony Joshua made a heartfelt speech during the Black Lives Matter march. In the speech, he mentioned: "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."

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 after he felt a "twinge" in his left knee during training this week.
