The 30-year-old Briton who recently suffered a minor injury while on lockdown needed a pair of crutches to join the protest with the slogan 'Black Lives Matter'.

This is as a result of the 46-year-old American George Floyd, who was murdered by a Minneapolis policeman late last month.

The death has seen protesters hit the streets in all 50 American states, with other countries showing solidarity by speaking up against the ill-treatment against the black people.

However, Joshua did not only March, but the boxer of Nigerian descent also delivered a powerful poem to the people gathered at a park from another Watford local and friend.

According to Sky Sport, this was one of the numerous Black Lives Matter protests in the UK staged on Saturday.

Although, they were said to have ignored the government's health secretary Matt Hancock warning against the risks not social distancing in the face of COVID-19.

In a speech shared via his official Instagram account, 30-year-old Joshua said: "We can no longer sit back and remain silent on these senseless, unlawful killings and sly racism on another human being - based on what? Only their skin colour.

"We need to speak out in peaceful demonstrations - just like today, so well done Watford. "We must not use a demonstration for selfish motives and turn it into rioting and looting."
