There is no way to actually explain in universe why Goku was afraid of Super Boo if he was stronger than him the whole time. But remember that Goku was afraid of Pure Boo, too; he was scared s***less by the Vanishing Ball and said there was nothing he could have done against it. And the only reason he turned down the Potara was because he thought Boo couldn't find the Kaioshin planet; he thought he had plenty of time to think of a plan, so he was probably gonna train. When Boo teleported there, he was stunned and only fought him because there was no other choice.

But despite his unwillingness to fight him, he was on par with Pure Boo and would have killed him if he used his full power. So while Goku was trash to Super Boo and Pure Boo before, Toriyama retconned it so he was above Pure Boo. And we know Pure Boo is stronger than Buffest Boo; his Ki was never said to have gone down, and it wouldnt make sense for Pure Boo to be the most troublesome Boo if Buffest Boo was stronger and every bit as uncontrollable. Goku thought he could easily handle Pure Boo at first, but him being scared of the Vanishing Ball the instant Boo got serious shows he was wrong; if he felt a decrease at first, it was because Boo held back.

Goku admits neither him nor Vegeta can beat Super Buu without Fusion.

Super Buu knows that without fusion neither Goku nor Vegeta can win.

https://qph.fs.quoracdn.net/main-qimg-d7222162612d5cff77d3b1a6de483920

This means Super Buu >>> SS3 Goku >= Kid Buu.

Goku never officially retracts his previously established narrative of barely being able to fight Fat Boo until just before he engages Kid Boo. That's not an explanation, it's just a fact. Whether people want to accept it or not is irrelevant.

Meanwhile, the Super Boo camp simply cannot explain how Kid Boo would be weaker than Buff Boo yet more troublesome than Buff Boo without resorting to fallacious reasoning to formulate their argument. Another fact, and anyone is welcome to try and prove me wrong.

He lied about being weaker than Fat Boo because he was dead and wanted Gotenks to do it. He has no reason to lie about being weaker than Super Boo for that reason, because he was alive and no longer relying on Gotenks.

And he was planning to turn Super Boo back into Fat so he could beat him when he was inside of his body.

He lied about being weaker than Fat Boo before he ever even considered that the boys could fuse.

You not understanding Goku's reasoning holds no bearing on the facts that are presented to us. Goku did what he did because that's what Goku did. That doesn't change or invalidate the fact that Goku never retracts his false narrative until just before fighting Kid Boo who is provably stronger than Buff Boo and by extension Super Boo.

At that point, he wasn't even sure how strong Boo was; Boo repeatedly raised his Ki since coming out of his shell, so for all Goku knew at that point, he could have done it again. It was only after fighting Boo for a while that Goku realized he could beat him.

What Goku lied about before Gotenks was brought up was only being equal to Vegeta. That was because he only wanted to use SS3 for emergencies as it would cut his time on Earth. Goku was alive when he said Super Boo would kill him, and he no longer had qualms about using SS3, as he does it against Bootenks and was planning to turn Boohan back into Fat, so he could beat him; even against the weaker Fat Boo who lost more than half of his power, Goku will need SS3.

You're drawing a correlation when there is none. Fat Boo isn't Super Boo; what Goku said about Fat has nothing to do with what he said about Super. Goku didn't want to fight Fat Boo as an SS3, because SS3 would eat away his time on Earth as a dead person; he's alive when he talks about Super Boo. He didn't want to defeat Fat Boo as an SS3, because he wanted Gotenks to do it; he's no longer depending on Gotenks when he talks about Super Boo.
