As a massive welterweight title clash between Errol Spence and Mikey Garcia was confirmed for March 16 of next year, one talking point dominated the aftermath.

Spence and Garcia went face-to-face at the FOX / PBC studio announcement as former undisputed heavyweight champ Lennox Lewis oversaw proceedings as special guest.

Some camera angles gave alternative perspectives, although the difference in weight was noticeable.

As Spence is out of camp at the moment, the IBF title holder is well above his fighting limit, which adds even more of a contrast to the photos and videos.

Garcia is attempted to win a world title at a fourth weight class, having first help a recognized belt at featherweight.

Following victory over Orlando Salido up with a triumph at 130 pounds, Garcia then lost a big portion of his career.

A legal wrangle with his former employers cost Garcia two and a half years of adding more straps.

When he eventually did return, Garcia won belts at 135 and 140 before opting to battle Spence.

It’s a dangerous assignment for Garica, who is daring to be great but will begin as the underdog for the first time in a long time.

As fans and boxing personnel draw comparisons at the head-to-head, one person took it a step further by mocking up the amusing image below.
