it don't have to be 'more talented' opposition or 'tougher opposition' it just have to be a win that IMPRESSED you more than Duran's win over Barkley. Personal opinion.
Not asking if Floyd have fought a more skilled guy than Barkley. The answer to that question is obviously yes.
Yes it is a simple question, but also an odd question. It is one where you really cannot come up with an answer which would mean anything more than playing favorites. It was a very impressive win for Duran, mainly due to his age at the time along with Barkley's Size and Toughness. Size though does not mean everything. Like Kev said, Duran's win over Leonard was in fact more impressive than any win Floyd has. That is a better comparison.
