Fired-up Anthony Mundine grabbed Jeff Horn in the throat during a fiery scale for Friday's match in Brisbane.

The veteran boxer issued a prolonged roar after easily entering under 71kg catchweight for the fight, tipping the scales on Thursday to weigh at 70.2kg.

Shortly after Horn recorded 70.55kg to also make it heavy, the pair faced off on the stage.

During the fight, the two fighters exchanged words before Mundine won the WBO welterweight champion and pushed him into coach Glenn Rushton.

"I just got excited," Mundine said afterwards.

"I'm like a lion locked up now. I'm ready to eat it."

Mundine has faced severe financial penalties if he failed to make a burden for the fight and said he had no fear of coming under 75kg in pre-fight weighing on Friday.

Horn said he felt good and linked his opponent's aggression with frustration at having to lose weight.

"I'm usually in his position … this time I'm feeling good."

The fight at Suncorp Stadium is a big match for both fighters.

Horn came out to rebuild his reputation after a degrading defeat for American Terence Crawford in June.
