A blagger pretended to be part of Leonardo DiCaprio's entourage to get ringside at the 'fight of the century' and was even defended by Floyd Mayweather after he was rumbled by security. Steve Carruthers, 24, from Hull in East Yorkshire, put on his best suit and waited outside the MGM Grand Garden Arena ahead of Manny Pacquiao and Mayweather's big fight on Saturday. When he spotted the A-list actor he followed behind his team straight into the VIP bar, where he mingled with the likes of Christian Bale, Donald Trump, Michael Keaton and Paris Hilton. He said: 'I was outside and I saw Leo DiCaprio - he had a cap on and his sunglasses and head down so that nobody recognised him, but I did and followed him in. 'I just walked in with him to the ballroom after tagging on with about six of his entourage. He went straight to the bar and that was where he took off his cap. 'He said he didn't do photos but he was really polite and shook my hand. 'He went towards the ring side so I just followed him in there and that was where I met loads of people and took a selfie with Mark Wahlberg. He was really nice and did a shout out on my phone.' Mr Carruthers wasn't the only person to blag himself a ringside seat, which set ticket-holders back a hefty £650,000. Ifran Ahmed, 29, and Chris Stowe, 30, from Essex, donned Mayweather tracksuits and baseball hats to sneak past security and fool everyone they were part of his team. The pair rubbed shoulders with a host of A-list stars from the likes of popstars Nicole Scherzinger and Justin Bieber to actors Mark Wahlberg and Verne Troyer after gaining ringside access. Due to a lack of spare spots Mr Carruthers had to take his seat in the designated one he had paid for. But after the 12th round he went back down and once again blagged his way past security and towards the boxers' dressing rooms where he met both sportsmen. 'There was about four other people there already with their accreditation badges around their necks - so I just walked through and evaded security,' he said. 'I just waited outside their dressing rooms and just avoided eye contact with anyone. Manny was the first one to come out and I took a photo with him. 'He was really nice considering he had just lost the biggest fight of his career. Nobody was asking who I was so I just stuck around and waited for Floyd to come out. 'He was really cool and had a huge entourage. I asked him for a photograph and also an autograph and I was walking with him. 'He said it was okay to walk along with him, but he had to go do an interview right then. 'The MGM security said I had no accreditation on, but he said "I got him" and said it was fine, he said "just leave him, don't worry it's fine". 'He said I could come and watch the press conference so the MGM guy had to just leave it and he said 'don't worry, I've got you'.' Mr Carruthers, who has now flown to LA for three weeks, added: 'After the interview he 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.' He also got selfies with Donald Trump, the Jonas Brothers, boxer Shane Mosley, Robbie Keane and golfer Lee Westwood.
