“Take that, Paddy Barnes!”

OLYMPIC BRONZE MEDALLIST Paddy Barnes let his guard down on Tuesday night — and found himself on the receiving end of a snowball attack from “Wee Oscar” Knox.

Oscar, who is battling a rare form of cancer called neuroblastoma, called the boxer out and publicly challenged him to a snowball fight on Twitter.

But when he called around to Barnes’ Belfast house for the duel and found nobody home, the four-year-old pelted the windows instead and chuckled: “Take that, Paddy Barnes.”

After seeing a video of the snowball attack which was posted to YouTube, Barnes vowed to have his revenge, warning: “You know this means war!”

The frosty atmosphere between the two won’t last for long though. Barnes has been one of Oscar’s most vocal supporters since the youngster’s diagnosis in late 2011 and even wore an Oscar Appeal fundraising wristband as he fought his way to his second Olympic bronze in London.
