With a little performance enhancing photoshop, Paddy Barnes looks like a hell of a heavyweight

Anthony Joshua is clearly in trouble there.

PADDY BARNES CAME up with a very simple solution to his struggles with weight in the 49kg division, just go heavyweight.

Sure if he has no trouble squaring up with London 2012 super heavyweight gold-medallist, and reigning IBF heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua, then it should be a doddle.

OK, maybe the 6’6″ Joshua might be one step up in class too far for the 5’4″ Barnes. Unless…

That’s more like it.
