I had a male do this too, what I did was introduce another male into the tank. That encourages the natural dominant nature of the male. Plus if the female was being overly aggressive and chasing him, it will make her become submissive due to having two males to deal with instead of one. Normally the males don't get right down to fighting, they posture and blow bubbles at each other before anything physical happens. I take the new male out once the spawing male is feeling cheeky but always before any real fighting. You wouldn't want to damage the fish
Good luck btw!!
