Anthony Joshua’s stunning victory over Wladimir Klitschko at Wembley may have looked like an exhausting 11 rounds, but it was surely equalled in effort by the fight’s organisers who transformed the stadium for the fight.
Promoter Eddie Hearn was by Joshua’s side throughout the build-up to the fight and that gave the Director of Matchroom Sport the opportunity to see first hand what had to be done to get Wembley ready.
And luckily, the 37-year-old has now posted real-time footage of the hard-work and dedication which went into preparing the football stadium for one of the biggest nights in 2017’s sporting calendar:

Despite being knocked down by Klitschko, Joshua hung in there and fought back to beat his Ukrainian opponent in a hugely entertaining contest, making him the new IBF, WBA and IBO heavyweight champion.
Immediately after the fight, Joshua spoke about his willingness to fight Tyson Fury next, who’s license has been suspended pending investigation for doping and medical issues.
However, Hearn spoke earlier this afternoon to dampen the rumours, claiming the fight between AJ and the Gypsy King remains “miles away”.
