Tito would beat the shit out of little ass Floyd. Floyd would be on his bike afraid to engage. Tito has never lost to a fighter smaller than him. Dude even had a prime Oscar running late in the fight.

Prime Oscar does much better than the faded one Floyd fought. I think Oscar gets the SD win.

But such talk is stupid. Floyd retired when the division was hot with Cotto, PW and Margarito hanging around. He probably avoids the division altogether in the days of Tito and Oscar at that same weight.

tough call

Mayweather didn't grow into a full fledge WW until he faced Hatton at 30 about to be 31. Prime Hoya and Tito were like 25-28 at WW. They would have the size and prime advantage in this fantasy matchup. That said I could see him beating Tito and losing to Hoya. Hoya's jab, size, and movement at that stage would have allowed him to control the fight.

Those saying that Mayweather would have never fought them, It would be different curcumstances. Mayweather wouldn't be the PPV draw he is without his fight with Hoya. He would have to fight guys like Hoya and Tito in order to have became one. The whole reason he went to WW in the first place was to fight Hoya and Mosley and become a PPV attraction.

Trinidad was at his best at WW

Oscar was much better at 135 and 140, but i see his absolute peak years being as a LW (ability terms), pity he outgrown the weight quickly because he was a force from 135-140.

Well that fight should have been an SD, not a UD, so yes, a SD in his prime would actually be a better performance.

Tito was 5'11 a with an arm reach of 72'1/12

The smallest man to beat him was a Winky Wright who fought between 154-160 pounds, was 5"10 1/2 with an arm reach of 72.

Floyd is 5'8 with an arm reach of 72.

You think he would be able to hit Tito without getting hit back?

After seeing the 154 pound fight between De La Hoya-Mayweather, Im confident a faster ad younger De La Hoya outboxes him at 147.

Floyds defense, chin, jab and body work in his prime would be enough to beat both guys. There is a reason why Dlh, Tito, and Ike did not fight Vernon Forrest, and took on lesser men at that weight. Forrest was a world class boxer, and so is Floyd. Floyd's size would not be a detriment to him at age 30 at ww against those guys.

vernon forrest was nearly 6 foot, you cannot compare floyd and vernon.
fighters with totally different attributes.

Felix Trinidad was a 5'11 Tall welterweight with Dangerous punching power in both hands . We all know Floyd doesnt get into the rings with guys like that and even if he did Trinidad outworks Floyd with activity cause Floyd would slightly feel titos power early and begin to play it safe using his movement and speed advantage to prevent himself from getting caught with a BOMB for the rest of the fight . If Mayweather gets caught ,90% hes going to be laid out . Trinidad 116-112 .

So much to talk about fantasy fights cause these are the fights that aren't happening anyway.
BTW, Floyd TKOs both early
