And over the weekend, he pulled off maybe his greatest stunt so far at the Floyd Mayweather vs. Manny Pacquiao fight in Las Vegas.

The 24-year-old managed to get ringside for the fight and then into the VIP area by pretending to be part of actor Leonardo DiCaprio's entourage.

"It was quite hard. You've got to have the balls to do it," the Daily Mail quoted him as saying.

"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 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."

He was eventually rumbled when he asked Mayweather for an autograph after the fight.

"The MGM security said I had no accreditation on, but he [Mayweather] said 'I got him' and said it was fine, he said 'just leave him, don't worry it's fine'," the Mail quoted him as saying.

"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'."
