Alfie later revealed, “It was very important. I stand behind the fight against racism. It’s a disgraceful thing, the well-documented death of George Floyd in America. It was my platform to say how I felt about things. We are united together. There is no place for racism in society. That was my platform. I wanted to make my feelings known today.”

Burden lost the match but he won the hearts and respect of viewers for showing courage and kneeling down for what’s right.
