the pawn can be inside a cage, eg:

8    [O] ( )        
7   . n b k b n r   
6   . p p p p p p              
5   . . . . . . .
4   . . . . . . .
3   . O O O O O O
2   R N B K B N R
1           
  a b c d e f g h i

now, if that cage is inserted into the board, the pawn will be at the last
row and will be promoted. Since the cage may belong to the adversary, it is
the mover that decides the promotion, not the owner
