  • "This guy is a bulldozer. With a wrecking ball attached! He'll leave a ring around your eye, and treadmarks on your back! He’s an animal. He’s hungry! You ain’t been hungry since Supreme Clientele! Remember what you first told me when I took you in? You wanted to be a fighter. You wanted to be a killer. You wanted to be the Champ! You ain’t hungry. Matter of fact, I don’t want you in my gym. Get out of my ring. You disgust me!"
