The super-lightweight pair were due to meet on Monday at a spicy press conference in Manchester.

But that event was cancelled on Saturday and the Glasgow bout is now postponed while he rests a foot injury.

Instead, they accidentally crossed paths ringside at the Chris Eubank Jr vs Liam Smith bout and a row kicked off.

Giant security staff pulled the men apart and Taylor retained his VIP seat but Catterall was moved to the opposite end of the row.

It will need a fourth date to be arranged after bouts in December and February were also axed, making March 4 the third doomed plan.

The pair clashed last February when Taylor defended all four world titles with a controversial decision.

The delay in rematching has meant the Tartan Tornado has lost three of the belts and only the WBO strap remains his.

A December re-run was cancelled when Taylor suffered a knee injury, then February 4 was in the pipeline before it got pushed back a month.

Taylor said: “I am the champion, I had to vacate some of the belts but I am still unbeaten.

“I am bringing big-time boxing back to Scotland, I love my country and want to represent the people and give them good nights.”

In an interview with talkSPORT, Taylor said of his hotly-disputed title defence: “I was absolutely rubbish but I got the right result.

“I didn’t think I did lose the fight.

“I thought I won it by a point or two.

“I thought he was very negative, on the back foot, holding and I think he should’ve had more than one point taken off him for excessive holding.

“It’s been and done. I got the decision.”
