Boxing heavyweight champion, Anthony Joshua’s £150k custom-built Land Rover stolen has been stolen, and he has to hunt down thieves.
The personalised luxury motor embossed with Anthony Joshua’s signature was stolen just days before his world title fight against Alexander Povetkin. Joshua defends his WBA, IBF and WBO heavyweight crowns against the Russian challenger, 39, at Wembley next Saturday.

A CCTV image shows a man suspected of stealing Joshua’s custom-built car.
AJ was training at the English Institute of Sport (EIS) in Sheffield, South Yorks., when it was nabbed from a relative’s home in London on Thursday.
Joshua parked the black motor – complete with a drawer for his world title belts – at the address whilst he headed north to make his final preparations for the bout.
His title belts are not believed to have been in the car at the time.
Last night, a spokesman for AJ said;
“A shared car was stolen from a relatives central London home in the early hours of the morning.
“This is now a police matter and no further information will be made available.”
A source said;
“AJ’s pretty annoyed about it because it’s so close to the fight. He doesn’t want any distractions at all.
