The big fight between Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao is less than three weeks away. The fight will be on May 2 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas and Sin City is going to be lit up for fight weekend with a number of pre- and post-fight parties hosted by some big names in the music industry. Hip hop superstars such as Snoop Dogg, Chris Brown, and Nicki Minaj will be hosting their own post-fight parties following the fight. Hip hop legend and entrepreneur Jay Z will be hosting an upscale mega party in Vegas at the Marquee Nightclub and a VIP table cost to this event will be staggering.
According to reports, the price for a VIP table to Jay-Z’s post fight party will cost a whopping $50,000, a 856% above the average price for Mayweather vs Pacquiao tickets at the MGM Grand which is $5,229.04 on the secondary market.
There will be a general admission price of $100 to get into this event for men, which is how much it will cost to watch the fight on pay-per-view for a hi-definition telecast of the bout. Women will get a discount, costing $30 for a general admission ticket to Jay Z’s party.
A number of celebrities are expected to attend this event, but according to Floyd Mayweather himself he will not be in attendance following his long awaited fight with his biggest rival Manny Pacquiao. He stated he will instead be at home after the fight to spend time with his family. Those who are planning to attend Jay Z’s post fight party, there will be a dress code with gentleman only limited to wear upscale-casual and button down collared shirts and dress shoes. Guests should not wear baseball caps, tennis or open-toed shoes for men.
Jay Z recently ventured out to the boxing business last August with his promotional brand Roc Nation Sports looking to make some noise into the bizarre world of the boxing business. It remains to be seen how successful Jay Z and Co. will be in this sport but they seem serious in making an impact and already signed two big names to multi-million dollar deals and have a few boxing events lined up in the coming months.
