The Art of Sneaking Into the Biggest Events in Sports
Bleacher Report leans in to hear straight from the scammers mouths: How’d you do it?
At the Mayweather-McGregor fight in Vegas, a scammer purchased a nosebleed ticket, but snuck his way ringside.

Lesser sporting events — like a regular Friday night Yankee games — also have their fair share of gate-crashers.
