WATCH: Lad Pulls Off The Ultimate Blag At The Mayweather/McGregor Press Conference

You can't beat a blag and one lad is responsible for one of the biggest and best you will ever seen.

In case you've been living under a rock, Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor held a four-city worldwide global press tour last week ahead of their August 26th superfight.

The last stop on the tour was at London's SSE Wembley Arena and as one would expect, demand for tickets and press passes was understandably huge as everyone wanted to be in attendance to see the titans of boxing and UFC verbally joust.

And despite security being tight as ever for the two biggest stars in sports being in town, Zac Alsop was determined to get in, and get close to Mayweather and McGregor.

Zac is no stranger to sneaking into high-profile events and chronicles his adventures on his YouTube channel. His past achievements include sneaking into a Foo Fighters gig and convincing people he was an Olympian for the Rio 2016 Olympics parade for Great Britain's stars in Manchester last year.

But his jib last Friday went to another level completely. His attention to detail and preparation was like a prime Michael Scofield in Prison Break- as using photoshop and a laminator, he expertly created fake promoter and press credentials. He locked in an ear-piece just to sell it even further that he was exactly where he was supposed to be.

Another fundamental piece of the plan was spotting a guy who had been on stage at the press conferences as part of Mayweather's mob, before making his way past security by standing directly an absolute giant of a man.

His journey sees him get VIP and ringside for the press conference, chatting to Irish fans who can't see to utter anything but "Fuck the Mayweathers", rubbing shoulders with the likes of UFC president Dana White before actually joining McGregor for his walkout in front of a sold-out Wembley, and ending up backstage for the solo presser McGregor held, and his subsequent face-to-face media scrums.

It's the ultimate jib and you really need to check it out here:


Fair play, Zac.Your next challenge is to get yourself to Vegas for the fight itself next month...
