Kell Brook has not been amused by some of the pre-fight chatter from his domestic rival, Amir Khan.
Brook had Khan have been feuding for well over a decade.
Their rivalry will come to an end when the two former world champions will collide in Manchester on February 19, live on Sky Sports Box Office and ESPN+.
Khan recently mentioned that he is battling through injuries as he prepares with new trainer Brian 'BoMac' McIntyre in Colorado. The Bolton star is also getting support from one of his former foes, WBO welterweight champion Terence Crawford, who also works with McIntyre.
"Amir is mentioning that he's got niggles. He's putting it out there that he's negative. I want to tell Khan: The fans have been waiting for years for this fight. I will turn up even if I've got two broken hands," Brook said.
"He messed about when we got contracts over the line. Now we've got a date, let's make this fight happen. I want him to turn up on February 19, the best he can be. The fans have been waiting too long. I've been waiting too long. I'm more than ready to show the world that I'm the best. After this fight, Amir will be a mere memory."
Brook is not worried about Khan's new training team - or Crawford's assistance in camp.
The Sheffield man was knocked out in four rounds by Crawford in 2020.
He highly doubts Khan can pull off the same result with McIntyre.
"I don't believe so. Amir keeps banging on about his trainer and having world champions in his camp," Brook said.
"Dominic Ingle, my trainer, has known me since I was teenager. He knows me inside-out. He knows when to push me, when not to push me, when I need a rest. Amir said he hasn't had a day off in a month. A rest is as good as a hard training session. The body needs to recover. His trainer has never worked with him - he doesn't know how to push Amir. We have no excuses.
"I'm putting myself through hell. People will remember me by this fight. It took years for this grudge match to finally get here. The fans have been waiting for this fight for a long time."
