I think he'd school and stop Barrera, beat Marquez handily on the scorecards similar to what he did to him at WW, and I think Morales vs. Mayweather at 130 would be a war until Mayweather stops him late. Remember Morales' best wins other than Pacquiao at 130 are against Chavez and Hernandez, each 3 years after their defeats to Mayweather (and Chavez more than held his own with Morales).

Marquez has a better shot at banking rounds in this case with better flexibility at the waist, better hand-speed, better foot-speed, and better reflexes. Baiting a more aggressive Floyd and countering him while advancing in spots in compliment would have made for a great fight. Marquez constantly triggered the left and landed right hands over it at WW, along with other seldom highlighted tricks that aren't usually pulled on him. Floyd would still have to be favored of course, but in no scenario do I see him stopping JMM. It's definitely a different fight than the one we saw in 2009.

Barrera's best bet is his ability to combine his sharp boxing ability with his aggression. The Hamed fight showed the kind of controlled and disciplined but tenacious offense that would serve him well against someone as quick and sharp as Floyd. He does have a decent right hand, but it's not his go-to punch, so he'd be left with feints, a great left jab, and fierce body punching . I think he'd lose a decision given how many clean rights the likes of Morales and Jones were able to sneak onto him, but he'd give a good account of himself and be competitive.

Morales probably has the best chance, given he has the best offensive straight punches of the trio and the necessary grit to keep coming forward. Timing his overhand right over the shoulder would be his best bet, and Floyd's body on the right side is also probably his most exposed region as well. It also works in his favor that he's disciplined enough to hang back and not always give Floyd the forward momentum he needs to land his hardest shots.

Looking back on Floyd's reign at 130, it's easy to forget that while he was in his physical prime, moved a lot more fluidly, and threw much more varied and damaging combinations, this wasn't Floyd's peak as a fighter. His ability to control the distance and use his guard in the pocket hadn't been fully mastered until later at 140, so one should imagine that each of the trio would be able to inch, feint, or rush forward and make it a close-range fight at some point. His vulnerabilities were most visible against the likes of Augustus and Chavez. The question then becomes who's better suited at that rang, and it's exciting to imagine the exchanges that would take place.

He beats the shit out of all three. None of them equate to the Castillo that Floyd fought.

Floyd destroys all of them and puts all of them on the canvas at one point.

Morales wouldn't have the pull to make Mayweather wear pillow like Winning Gloves. Mayweather would beat Morales easier than he beat Marquez. Hell, Morales didn't give Raheem much trouble.

Beats Marquez and Barrera easily.

Morales could make it competitive by Mayweather standards

105 pounder Ivan Calderon is said to have raped both Oscar de la Hoya and Shane Mosley in sparring. So I'd pick a Calderon UD over both of them.

Also, Duran KO Horse.
