Anthony Joshua calls on world’s top athletes to form union to fight racism


Anthony Joshua has called on the world’s elite athletes to form a “union” and use their platform in the fight against racism.

The world heavyweight champ is admired and respected for his charity and community work across the country, as well as backing Black Lives Matter.

And speaking to Time For Change Debate, AJ said: “Athletes have the biggest platform, so we all judge on that.

“I think an individual trying to make a change is a lot more difficult than a union of people trying.

“And I think the images that we need to represent are important.

“The same way I rally for, Under Armour, the same way I rally for Range Rover is the same way I should rally for the African Caribbean community.”

The WBA, WBO, and IBF king, 30, is waiting for a new date for his bout with Kubrat Pulev, 39.

AJ added: “In 300 years when none of us is here, there’s going to be everlasting change.

“Whether it turns into a hashtag or not, this moment will never be forgotten.”
