“If you got (living) quarters – If you have quarters, I’ll stay on the island, bro.

“This is my dream scenario: After this fight, I come back, get this knockout, remind everybody who it is,” he said.

“Fifteen fights later I knock out the guy holding the belt, whoever it is.”

Hardy sounds like a guy who gets punched in the head for a living.
