Las Vegas, Nevada: As the Mayweather-Pacquiao fever heats up in Las Vegas, a Manny Pacquiao impersonator was escorted out of the MGM Grand by security after creating a commotion on Thursday afternoon (Thursday evening UAE time).

Excited fans rushed to get a glimpse of Pacquiao’s dead ringer, alarming the hotel management, who have tightened security ahead of the mega-fight between American boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr and Pacquiao on May 2 (May 3 UAE time) at the MGM Garden Arena.

A security guard said the Pacquiao lookalike, nationality unknown, was asked to leave the area and escorted to a taxi outside the hotel.
