Lotto-win millionaire beat lover

A lottery millionaire and cage fighter is facing jail after admitting to brutally beating his girlfriend.

Gavin Dale Davies (29), below, subjected Daniah Hussain to a "prolonged" violent assault months after clinching a EuroMillions Millionaire Raffle win.

Davies, of Ammanford, South Wales, toasted his good fortune with champagne in January after claiming his £1m (¤1.2m).

At the time, he vowed to turn his back on cage fighting and transform his win into a bigger fortune. Yesterday he was remanded in custody at Swansea Crown Court after admitting causing actual bodily harm on April 20.

Davies, who will be sentenced on July 13, also admitted a single charge of assault on December 31.

Davies splashed out on three luxury cars after collecting his lottery cash, including a Lamborghini LP560-4.

The April attack happened while he was at the wheel of his 'everyday' Audi after an argument between him and his girlfriend.
