man's hand with another man's collar in his fist

How would you describe this action?

Is he holding or grasping or what?

Yes, he is holding or grasping the shirt. These words are synonyms in this context.

Perhaps, given the active nature of a fight, you might say that he has grabbed the shirt, or grabbed the collar.
