Lennox Lewis returned with a world title belt from his bout in Las
Vegas with Evander Holyfield. And Mail on Sunday group head Simon Davies
came back with a big wad.
Davies travelled to Vegas with MoS colleague Rob Atkinson, M&C Saatchi’s
Nick Hurrell, CDP’s Peter Thomson and Metro’s Ben Davey, who is,
incidentally, a relative of Lewis’s manager Frank Maloney.
Atkinson says: ’Everybody was losing money at roulette and blackjack but
Simon hit the craps tables, which the rest of us didn’t know how to
play. At one point he was a grand up, but they changed the dealer and he
started losing quickly. He saw the way it was going so called in his
chips at 6.30am - pounds 750 up.’
