Joseph Parker hailed his preparations for his heavyweight title fight against Dillian Whyte in London on Saturday.
The New Zealander will go toe-to-toe with Whyte for the vacant WBO International Heavyweight title at the O2 Arena.
"I'm in great shape. There are no excuses here," Parker said at the pre-fight press conference. "Before I just to come into fights and say 'hopefully I will have a good fight and catch him clean'. There's no hopefully here.
"I'm here to do damage. I'm here to punch. I'm going to break him down.
"My opponent has been talking a lot of smack. Sometimes I think smack talk is a sign of doubt and a sign of tying to convince himself and others that he's ready for the challenge.
"I hope he's ready to take all the punches as I'm going to give it real bad."
Whyte did not shy away from Parker's taunts.
He said: "I've trained with a lot of lighter guys, fast guys, strong guys. Wherever he wants it, I'll be there.
"I have come here to win. I've trained hard."
