Anthony Joshua’s £150k personalised Range Rover stolen in London days before heavyweight title fight
World’s Heavyweight Champion, Anthony Joshua’s £150,000 personalised Range Rover has been stolen in central London.
The boxer’s luxury car, was taken outside a family member’s home in the capital just days before his world title fight against Alexander Povetkin.
A source told MailOnline: ‘In the early hours of yesterday morning, Anthony Joshua’s personalised Range Rover was stolen from outside a relative’s house while he was away training at the Sheffield Institute of Sport. He has reported it stolen.’
He’s the unlikeliest of targets for car thieves as the car is completely personalised with its registration number while head rests, steering wheel, a badge and even door interiors are marked with the Anthony Joshua signature. It’s also fitted with a tracker. And who’d want to be caught stealing from the heavyweight champion of the world?
‘So he’ll be absolutely gutted as he loves that car, which is shared with family members while he’s away. The family member who had it taken from their driveway is said to be devastated.
‘And this is an unwelcome distraction while he’s preparing for his heavyweight clash against the Russian Alexander Povetkin at Wembley Stadium on 22 September.’
Joshua was filmed receiving the high-performance Range Rover SV Autobiography Dynamic in March this year after working with designers and technicians to create various exclusive features, including its premium paint finish which is named after him, World Champion Graphite.
It also features a diamond quilted leather interior finished in black and white, with a personalised storage unit in the boot and boxing glove pattern surrounds on the door handles.
Joshua’s spokesman said: ‘A shared car was stolen from a relative’s central London home in the early hours of Thursday morning.
‘This is now a police matter and no further information will be made available,’ he added.
But a CCTV picture captured a man suspected of stealing Joshua’s £150,000 bespoke Range Rover in the early hours of Thursday morning.
