It may be more used to goals than punches, but Wembley Stadium was the centre of the boxing world last weekend. 

The home of the England national football team, saw a boxing event take place in the stadium for the second time since its redevelopment in 2007. Anthony Joshua and Wladimir Klitschko fought for the IBF, WBA (Super) and IBO heavyweight titles.

With 90,000 fans in situ at Wembley, the attendance beat the crowd size that saw Carl Froch defeat George Groves in 2014.

Since the fight on Saturday night, promoter Eddie Hearn has revealed a timelapse video of how Wembley transformed from a football stadium into an arena that was fit to host a heavyweight world title fight. 

The process to create the arena, to clearing the famous field took three days, with many working late into Thursday and Friday night. The ring in which Joshua and Katie Taylor both won in was only built on Friday afternoon, just over 24 hours before the fight.

One of the more fascinating aspects of the transformation was how late it was completed. Many sections of seats on the Wembley pitch were not in place until late on Saturday morning.

The video shows how much effort is needed to transform the famous stadium. It's understandable now why only two fight cards have taken place at Wembley in the past ten years.
