At Marvel Stadium in Melbourne, fighter Devin Haney, who looks like an altar boy at the local Catholic church, stood in the middle of the ring.
With his hands at his sides, an aggressive opponent fuelled by a home crowd seeking for a chance to celebrate hurled haymakers at him and stuck his tongue out.
This was only seconds before the bell rang in one of the numerous rounds he won on Saturday against George Kambosos, a tough but vastly outmatched opponent for the undisputed lightweight title.
It was one of the few times Haney relaxed and didn't keep rigidly to the strategy that he and his father, Bill, had devised.
Because both are with Top Rank, a bout between Haney and Lomachenko would be the most logical and easiest to set up.
But, as he's promised since he was 19, he'll have to battle Gervonta "Tank" Davis to establish who is the best in the lightweight division.
