Video: Anthony Joshua vs the Audi R8 and Stig
Here's the time we strapped the heavyweight champ into an R8 with Stig
Anthony Joshua is the current IBF and WBA heavyweight champion of the world, following an astonishing victory over former unified champ Wladimir Klitschko. When he popped down to TG last year though, we pit him against his deadliest ever foe: The Stig.
