“He’s tough but I’m better than him,” says Strickland to Olivi in the interview. Strickland is really looking forward to causing some damage to Jack’s face. “There’s a sad fact about me, I don’t really hit that hard. It is one of those things I’ve accepted. I could see me beating him half to death for 25 minutes, you know.”

“I would like to see his face, you know…you start hitting in the first round then you get a black eye. Second round, the nose starts bleeding. Third round, lip starts bleeding, and then the fourth round, I can’t count. Anyways, as the fight goes on it is fun to watch the damage progress, and hopefully, I’m not the one getting my ass kicked,” said Strickland.
