Anthony Joshua faces Wladimir Klitschko at Wembley tomorrow.
Preparing for probably the most important week in his professional career, IBF Heavyweight World Champion Anthony Joshua MBE has taken delivery of a bespoke Land Rover Range Rover SV Autobiography Dynamic. Joshua will face WBA World Heavyweight Champion Wladimir Klitschko to contend boxing’s Super Title at Wembley Stadium tomorrow in "one of the biggest nights in my boxing career," according to Joshua.
The vehicle was created especially for him by Land Rover's SVO division after he made an order earlier this year. The carmaker explains he visited SVO Technical Centre in Warwickshire in the last few months to work with designers and engineers on various interior and exterior individualisations.
Some of the bespoke finishes on the vehicle include a unique colour, named World Champion Graphite, diamond-quilted leather interior, finished in ebony and pimiento red and featuring Anthony Joshua’s signature embroidered on the driver’s headrest, and a chrome B-pillar badge again featuring his signature.
The SUV is also the first in the world to come with Land Rover’s new SVO Design Pack, which introduces a range of “highly desirable and distinctive exterior enhancements to complement Range Rover’s peerless combination of outstanding British design and advanced engineering”. Simply said, the package includes different front and rear bumpers, new side vents, side sills, and a bespoke grille, which give the SUV a distinctive look. The official market launch of the pack is scheduled for May this year.
“I am preparing meticulously for Wembley on April 29th, no stone has been left unturned and I will enter the ring ready for a battle,” Joshua commented at the handover of the keys. “I spend a lot of time on the road travelling to Sheffield during my training camps so I am incredibly grateful to Land Rover and the SVO team for their assistance.”
As for the Joshua-Klitchko battle, more than 80,000 tickets for tomorrow’s match have already been sold, beating the previous record for the highest attended boxing game on Wembley from 2014.
