A very brave 24-year-old man from the UK already had a ticket to the Mayweather-Pacquiao fight but he envisioned something even bigger and bolder!
Steve Carruthers wore slacks and a blazer and waited for the perfect opportunity to sneak and blend in with Leo DiCaprio’s entourage backstage.
“I was outside and I saw Leo DiCaprio — he had a cap on and his sunglasses and head down so that nobody recognized him, but I did and followed him in, Carruthers said.”
Once inside, he mingled and even got selfies with stars such as Christian Bale, Donald Trump, Michael Keaton and Paris Hilton.
When the Englishman tried to obtain Mayweather’s autograph, that’s when security realized the snafu but Mayweather allowed him into the press conference, along with the autograph and a couple of pictures.
“After the interview (Mayweather) was like ‘Let’s go do the photos outside.’ I got one and I was going to leave it, but he got security to take quite a few photos. He was really, really nice,” Carruthers quipped.
Very nice job Steve… bravo!
