Those last two definitions of Hard Man are all wrong. The first one is actually referring to a chav, which is quite the opposite, and the other was written by someone who plays too much Mega Man.

A Hard Man is someone who is unafraid of a fight and/or can take loads of physical punishment and drink.

a hardman is generally someone who isn't afraid to speak up for their beleifs or even fight if it comes to it. generally large in build, a bit of weight and a bit of muscle.

a good example of a hard man would be Ray Winstone's charachters in either 'Love, Honor and Obey' or the short film 'Bouncer'. an experienced fighter with some reserve.

Glaswegian colloquialism for: A fighter who can take a hit as well as (sometimes better than) he gives. A survivor.
P1: Any coward can through a punch at the back of someone's head. But a real hard man (/hardman) looks the bloke right in the eye, and is ready to give "the old 1 3".
P2: Don't you mean "the old 1 2"?
P1: No, the "2" is for him. He's a hard man because he knows he will take it and still gets to 3.
