Josh Taylor had his throat grabbed by Jack Catterall after they butted heads in an intense face-to-face with their undisputed title fight edging nearer.

The face-off after Friday’s weigh-in exploded when they charged towards each other and immediately put their foreheads together, before Catterall put his hand around Taylor’s neck.

They were dragged apart by security while still shouting at each other.

Taylor’s undisputed super-lightweight championship is on the line on Saturday in his homecoming fight in Scotland, live on Sky Sports.
