Jolie And Pitt Console Hatton After Title Defeat
ANGELINA JOLIE and BRAD PITT were among the stars on hand to console British boxer RICKY HATTON following his disappointing defeat by U.S. fighter FLOYD MAYWEATHER JR. on Saturday night (08Dec07). Hatton was cheered on by the Hollywood couple as he went up against the unbeaten Mayweather Jr. in the World Boxing Council welterweight battle in Las Vegas at the weekend - in a match that was also watched by the likes of Denzel Washington, Wesley Snipes, Kid Rock, Sylvester Stallone and Jude Law. The Brit lost the fight after being knocked out in the 10th round, but he was given a hero's welcome when he returned to his dressing room - where Jolie and Pitt were waiting to greet him. A camp insider says, "Angelina and Brad made a point of visiting Ricky after the fight to see that he was OK and to say well done. "He crashed down right in front of them and Angelina grimaced. It was the first time she had ever seen boxing up close and she was worried that Ricky had been seriously hurt. "Brad went with her to his dressing room later and they congratulated him on putting up such a fight. She seemed genuinely affected by what she'd seen and told Ricky he'd been very brave."
