Anthony Joshua had his Range Rover tagged by Alexander Usik’s manager before his heavyweight showdown.
Egis Klimas was seen casually writing ‘Usyk’ on the door of a luxury 4×4 in Britain.

Joshua will need no more motivation to beat Usik when the pair take on Tottenham on Saturday.
The 31-year-old Brit is a huge fan of his cars and regularly poses with Range Rovers.
Before the fight, Tyson Fury’s promoter Frank Warren warned Joshua that he could be spoiled by the Ukrainian’s skills if he could not seal a knockout early.
He added: “If he gets to round 12, I’d like Usyak to make the decision because he has to outbox him to get there.

“And he’s obviously a very smart operator, you know how he’s going to fight — he’s going to try and get in and under AJ’s jab.”
But Joshua plans to go the distance with cruiserweight King Usyk — and then some.
Sparring partner Shokaran Parwani told SunSport: “AJ has been conditioned for 15 rounds, he has dropped six people, different characteristics, different styles, different techniques.
