Breeding: male size vs. female size

I bought Sahara with the intent of her being a "girlfriend" for Spoon. She's only 1100 grams right now but I hope to put some weight on her and get her ready for next season (IF she starts eating for me, that is). Spoon, however, is HUGE. Over 4 feet long and definitely over 2000 grams. If he's bigger than her, will that matter when it comes to mating? Most breeding pics I've looked up show a male that's much smaller than the female.

Have you had Spoon professionally sexed? Because 2000 plus grams is a VERY big male.

He's definitely a male, he came from Al Guetzkow (NEWReptiles) and I know Spoon has bred females in the past. He's 8 years old, CBB '98. He eats like a pig. Now that I think about it, he's probably not over 2000 grams but damn close. He 4'4" long and I can't close my fingers around his mid-section. I need to get a scale now that I have snakes again.
