It takes a certain type of sportsperson who has the humility to take the piss out of themselves. Barnes was in Lithuania for the Socikas Invitational. The Belfast boxer is into the final of flyweight competition - but it didn't go as smoothly as Barnes would have liked.
In fact, it could be argued that Barnes' biggest battle in the fight was with a stool. Barnes had a bit of a moment in between rounds yesterday, as he was so kind to share with us on twitter:

Now all we have to do is wait to see it on Question of Sport in the next few years.
