Unified world heavyweight champion, Anthony Joshua, is a popular Nigerian/English professional boxer who has an amazing career in boxing.
When it comes to cars, Joshua's car collection is decent and not so impressive when compared to other top celebrities. And it's understandable, the heavyweight belt holder just started getting interested in luxurious rides in his early 20s. He's 29 years old now.
Joshua once told Telegraph, a multimedia news outlet, that the car a person drives always creates an impression about that individual.
Here's what he said,
"You can create an illusion with what you drive when you turn up to meetings.
So, for example, if I pull up in a Bentley, but I haven’t got anything worth selling, you’re probably going to believe what I’m telling you anyway because of what you see. It’s always a good representation. That’s when I started to understand that power cars can have."

Having said that, let's take a look at 3 classy car's Anthony Joshua has used.
1. Vauxhall Astra
This is the first car Anthony Joshua acquired. He got it at a time when he didn't have much cash to his name. He saved up £1,500 (₦704,000) to buy it and waited for three months to finally pay for the car's insurance.
He opted for the car because it was what the police were using at that time.

2. Range Rover SVO
As Joshua's boxing career rose, Range Rover customized a car for him to accommodate all of his boxing gears. He paid £150,000 (₦70 million) to get it done.
The car's door handle came fitted with a distinct boxing glove pattern and the driver’s headrest, steering wheel B-pillar door sills are embossed with Joshua's signature.
It's quite unfortunate that Joshua didn't enjoy his car for long as it was stolen and till now, is yet to be found.

3. Jaguar XJR
Joshua certainly has a thing for Jaguar. He even personalized the car by having some sports touches added to it.
While describing the Jaguar, he said,
"When I pull up in a Jag, it’s like a watch. Certain watches, everyone has, but there are certain watches only a few people know about
The Jag is a car that only certain people know about. It used to be that it was a car for the established man, who’d been in the game for years and treated himself to a Jag, but now they’re crossing right the way across the board. And I’m lucky enough to have one that they’ve kept classy but added a few sports touches to."
