Random Guy Poses As Security, Gets Ringside Seat For Mayweather-McGregor
For months, the public dealt with multiple rumors on whether Floyd Mayweather would come out of retirement to face a trash-talking Conor McGregor and on Saturday, it finally happened.
It was the hottest ticket in Las Vegas and celebrities came from all over to witness history as McGregor made his pro-boxing debut against the undefeated boxing and defensive boxing legend.
While many opted to pay for a ticket to get inside the T-Mobile Arena, one random guy grabbed one of the best seats in the house by pretending to be part of Floyd Mayweather’s security team.
British bartender Oliver Regis had already purchased a ticket, but found out later it was way in the nosebleeds, he decided to upgrade his seat for free.
Regis said he posed as a member of Mayweather’s team and shadowed them past security, who failed to scan his ticket. He then stationed himself in the third row, where he proceeded to snap selfies with several celebrities, including P. Diddy, Demi Lovato, Jamie Foxx, Dana White, and Mike Tyson.
“I did feel a bit cheeky – but this was a once-in-a-lifetime chance,” Regis told The Sun. “I could not believe it worked.”
