CHAMPION SUPERNOVA; Oasis boys help Hatton celebrate.

Byline: By Stephen White

THEY'VE traded a few punches with each other but the Gallagher brothers boxed clever as pal Ricky Hatton showed he's king of the ring.

Oasis pair Liam and Noel celebrated in the ring with Manchester fighter Hatton, 30, after he retained his IBO light-welterweight title in Las Vegas.

They weren't the only British stars ringside to see Hatton dispatch Paulie Malignaggi - footballer David Beckham and actor Jason Statham were also in the star-studded crowd at the MGN Grand Garden Arena. Even Rocky star Sylvester Stallone turned up for the big fight.

It's rumoured Hatton, who is expected to get a big money fight as a welterweight against Oscar De La Hoya or Manny Pacquiao, is heading off on a road trip to Mexico with the Gallagher boys before getting back to training.

Noel better tell Liam that if he picks a fight with Ricky, he's on his own...
