    Default Catherine Zeta Jones joins A-list heavyweights in crowd for Joe Calzaghe fight

    Hollywood star Catherine Zeta Jones showed off her national pride in Las Vegas over the weekend, cheering on her fellow Welsh countryman Joe Calzaghe as he boxed his way to victory.


    With bright yellow daffodil pinned to her dress and a Welsh flag draped around her shoulders, the actress could barely contain her excitement as the "Pride of Wales" took on American boxer Bernard Hopkins.

    She was joined by a who's who roll call of A-list stars, including Tom Jones, sang his homeland's national anthem, Land Of My Fathers, before the 36-year-old entered the ring in front of more than 14,000 fans.



    Tom said: "To be singing on behalf of Joe is a privilege."

    Former action heroes Arnold Schwarzenegger, Sylvester Stallone and Bruce Willis were also lined up to watch Calzaghe flex his muscle.


    Reality television king Simon Cowell took a front row seat as did Topshop boss Sir Philip Green.

    Other ringside stars included music impresario Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber, 007 “Jaws” Richard Kiel, televion host Cat Deeley, rapper Jay-Z, R&B star Brandy, actors Chris Tucker and James Belushi and tennis champion Pete Sampras.

    After the fight Joe, joined by his model girlfriend of four years, Jo-Emma Lavin and children Connor and Joe, celebrated his victory at Planet Hollywood hotel and casino on Vegas' famous Strip.


    Joe said: “I think we've proved tonight that Britain is at the top when it comes to boxing. I'll enjoy a nice beer or two and definitely spend time with the family.”


    He recovered from a first-round knockdown to defeat Hopkins by split decision in a light heavy-weight bout in Las Vegas on Saturday.

    Calzaghe was awarded the bout on two of the three judge's scorecards, with him winning it 115-112, 116-111, 113-114.



    He showed little of his famed prodigious punch output in the first couple of rounds, as Hopkins gained the early initiative and knocked the Welshman down in the first round.

    By the third round, however, Calzaghe had become more active, looking to trap Hopkins in the corner or against the ropes and then unleash flurries of punches and his work rate counted for him in the end.



    "It was one of the toughest fights of my career," said Calzaghe.
    "He is very clever. He was so awkward. It wasn't pretty, but I won the fight. It wasn't my best night, but I know I won."

    He's gonna have a lot more huge money fights in the future as an undefeated light heavyweight 45-0. Marciano's record was something like 50 or 60 something

    I used to love the pugilistic art of boxing until Don King got his crooked claws into the sport and now most of it's rigged.

    For the love Tom Jones lay off the spray tan and hair dye. Sylvester Stallone waiting for the growth hormones to kick in?

    I hope I don't get jumped on for this, but that flag is ridiculous looking.
    Everyone is entitled to be stupid, but some abuse the privilege.

    CZJ looks pretty good in those pictures. Where was Grandpa? Did she leave MD at home?

    wow Sparkly I was saying all this snarky crap about the flag so I looked it up and it really does look that bad. They didn't bring a cheap knock off.

    Come on if your going to have a dragon have a real macho looking dragon.. not one with a dorky huge nose or one that looks like he swallowed his tail..... I'd like to introduce their flag maker to Michael Whelan
