Well now, that's something you don't usually see.
During the official weigh-ins for the WBO middleweight championship match between Billy Joe Saunders and Willie Monroe Jr., things got a little physical, but it wasn't between the two protagonists.
Instead, it was between Monroe and Saunders' son.
Check the video out (the action starts at the 3:45 mark):
As you can see, Saunders' son was playing around on the weighing scale when Monroe noticed the kid and decided to give him a friendly pat on the head.
That's when the kid took his shot, firing one below Monroe's belt, and then following up with a kick for good measure before being carried away.
Saunders and Monroe have been trading some verbal jabs back and forth leading up to the fight and tensions were quite high during the weigh-ins.
Maybe the kid just wanted to help his dad out?
Whatever it is, that's something we hope we've seen the last of during official weigh-ins.
Saunders and Monroe will go head-to-head at the Copper Box Arena in London, England on Saturday, September 16th.
