The Mayweather vs Pacquaio fight on May 2 isn't just big money for the fighters and promoters and TV networks involved in the event itself, it's huge money for the city of Las Vegas, and there are some big names in entertainment looking to get a piece of that action.

One of those names is Nicki Minaj, who will headline a post-fight bash at the Chateau Nightclub & Rooftop at Paris Las Vegas, with tickets starting at $160 and shooting up to $9,900 for a VIP rooftop table package to the event, which will also feature Jeremih, Sevyn Streeter, and Funkmaster Flex. TMZ is also saying that Drake is rumored to perform, but that's not confirmed.

This is just a taste of how big of an event this is, really. Nicki Minaj is a headline touring act who doesn't by any means need to do a show like this -- her current Pinkprint Tour is doing big business across the world. For her to be the headline act of a post-fight show like this says a lot about what level of event this is, particularly in terms of money.
