Anthony Joshua’s £150k Range Rover Stolen Weeks Before Title Match

Boxing heavyweight, Anthony Joshua, has been hit by potential distraction ahead of his title match against Alexander Povetkin on September 22 as his £150,000 bespoke Range Rover was stolen in the early hours of Thursday morning.

According to a report by MailOnline, the British boxer has vowed to hunt down the thieves who pinched his personalised luxury motor - embossed with AJ's signature.  

Joshua defends his WBA, IBF and WBO heavyweight crowns against the Russian challenger, 39, at Wembley next Saturday.

Joshua was training at the English Institute of Sport (EIS) in Sheffield, South Yorkshire, when it was taken from a relative's home in London on Thursday
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'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.”

Police believe thieves targeted the Range Rover using a keyless device that mimics a car's key fob to break in.

The £100 device can pick up the signal of the genuine fob and fool the car into thinking it's being opened legitimately
Once inside, the thieves can override the keyless start with a simple computer.

The number of similar thefts is on the rise, particularly in London.

Thieves apparently get around £5,000 per car, which is dismantled and rebuilt into a new car from a number of the same type of stolen vehicle. By doing so it is harder to identify.

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.

A Met Police spokesman and Land Rover have so far declined to comment when contacted by MailOnline.
