The British cum Nigerian citizen, Anthony Joshua has been spotted supporting the Black Lives Matter movement in his hometown Watford, while hobbling around on crutches.
The demonstration was occasioned by the killing of George Floyd by police in Minneapolis last week.
AJ, the boxing heavyweight champion was spotted on crutches at the Black Lives Matter protest in Watford.
The Brit hero was never going to let his injury stop him taking part in the demonstration while he also took the mic and addressed the crowd in his hometown.
The protest was the latest in a series of them since the tragic death of George Floyd in the US last week and his recent knee injury was not going to stop AJ doing his bit to support the fight for racial equality.
The 30-year-old was one of many peaceful protesters to take to the streets on Saturday, and streamed a series of powerful speeches to his 11.3million followers on Instagram.
And Watford will also do its bit, with the local Town Hall set to turn purple this evening in solidarity with the movement.
Wearing a Black Lives Matter hoodie, Joshua managed to smile through the discomfort in his knee.
And he addressed the assembled crowd through a microphone as they rallied against social injustice.
In the background of the heavyweight king, powerful placards could be seen, featuring messages including “Silence is Violence” and “Black + Proud”.
While Joshua was seen hobbling around on crutches – he also took to a mobility scooter at one point to get around more quickly.
He was first seen wearing the leg brace earlier this week, as he zoomed around central London on a mobility scooter among friends.
And with fans worried about their hero’s injury, a source said: “Anthony felt a slight twinge in his knee while training.
He also took a break from the crutches to get around in a mobility scooter
