Anthony Joshua Buys His First Coach A £58,000 BMW

Anthony Joshua paid a visit to his amateur boxing club in Finchley, north London

  • The IBF heavyweight champion bought his first coach, Sean Murphy, a BMW
  • The 27-year-old faces Wladimir Klitschko at Wembley Stadium on Saturday night
  • The 27-year-old returns to the ring on Saturday night in a highly-anticipated bout with Wladimir Klitschko on Saturday night.

As he dropped into the Finchley ABC in north London to reminisce about his amateur career, Joshua asked his former trainer to step outside, where his surprise gift was parked - a BMW 640d M Sport Coupe.

The six series does a top speed of 155pmh and possesses in-line diesel six, twin-turbochargers at 2993cc.

Joshua's gift included 'Finchley ABC Sean Murphy at the bottom of its registration plate, and even had his old coach's name inscribed inside next to the gear stick.

Murphy, a former boxer himself, reacted in astonishment when he was presented with his new wheels: 'What the f*** man? F*** off', he said.

'I'd be scared to drive it!' he joked as he got to grips with his new car, while Joshua added: 'There's a little contract on it that you can't sell it in six weeks.'

The Finchley District and Amateur Boxing Club is one of the leading UK amateur boxing clubs and offers training to all who want to learn the ropes.

The gym has consistently been producing schoolboy, national and international amateur champions up to Olympic level, including Spencer The Omen Oliver and Murphy himself.

Murphy, who won 22 of his 25 fights in an eight-year professional career, said: 'I remember Josh saying to me a long time ago, "I'll look after you." Him just winning the world title is enough for me.

Joshua added: 'These guys will always have their doors open for me no matter what. When it's all said and done, I never forget who's been there when no one was.

'This is just something off my own chest. There'll be a lot more to come, don't worry about that.'
