Boxer Ohara Davies apologies to Paddy Barnes and wife following 'low blow' tweet

English boxer Ohara Davies has apologised to Paddy Barnes and his wife Mari following a tasteless tweet he has since deleted.

Barnes is currently with wife Mari on honeymoon in Dubai and the ever-humorous two-time Olympic bronze medallist took to Twitter to share an image from the top of Burj Khalifa hotel with the words "Think I got a little bit too excited today at the top of Burj Khalifa" (See picture to appreciate the humour!).

The picture was liked 3,500 times but Davies, who has been involved in twitter spats with Barnes and fellow Belfastman Carl Frampton before, descended to a new low when he shared Barnes' picture along with a comment about the happy couple regarding their looks.

Davies then issued the following apology.

"Apologies to Paddy Barnes' wife for the tweet sent yesterday. It was a low blow and came from a place of immaturity. She had nothing to do with mine and his beef over social media."
