From what I've read about those who have had their iguanas castrated (it isn't the same procedure as neutering a dog), it has little or no effect on their natural territorial defensiveness, which is undoubtedly being exacerbated by having two males in close proximity. If they were split up, in separate enclosures where they could not see to intimidate one another, nor compete constantly for basking spots and food, it would probably help... but that is definitely no guarantee. Many iguanas are just like this, and they are very slow and stubborn to change behaviors which they've learned over a period of time. All you can do is be patient, and work with them as much as possible. Getting into a routine that they can learn, and slowly become accustomed to.
