Corrales would've KO out of prime Morales as well to beat MAB IMO. Corrales was way too big for both of them and their aggressive style would suit corrales well.
Raheem-Morales was a stylistic issue and you know that. Watch the fight...Raheem used his speed and ran his ass off. You really think a guy like Morales is gonna be outboxed by Chavez or Hernandez? Or outbrawled? The guy came back 4-5 years older, 3 weight divisions later and nearly beat one of the most dangerous fighters in the sport.

For the record, Morales did beat Chavez. Granted it was a 2 years younger Morales but it was still Morales of 130 and Chavez was still champ.

And no, Corrales would get outboxed silly by Morales.

Also you bring up the Morales weight issue. Morales with weight issue performed much better than Corrales with weight issue against Floyd. Corrales had to drop a lot more weight than Morales and was dealing with a lot of outside issues at the time. Still *****'s will never mention that, yet Corrales was probably in as poor condition as ODLH was for Pac fight.
