Mayweather was barely a welterweight when he fought Oscar at 154. Hes a muscular beast now.

Comparing the 2 is nonsensical. Might as well compare Chaf Dawson and Andre Dirrell because their both southpaws lol.
I'd say their right hands a comparable, comparing the two versions being discussed. Reach is also a factor, but when they stand next to each other, the difference doesn't seem as wide:
