A lottery winner from Ammanford who beat up his girlfriend will be sentenced today.
Gavin Davies, 29, pleaded guilty to causing actual bodily harm, as well as a charge of common assault from December. The cage fighter beat his partner in a "prolonged" violent assault months after clinching a EuroMillions Millionaire Raffle win.
Davies toasted his good fortune with champagne at a luxury hotel after clinching £1 million in January. At the time he vowed to turn his back on cage fighting and transform his win into a much larger fortune.
