That was pretty much exactly what happened, I think. Oscar was only there for the big money and he had assumed Cotto would win and he was the only Oscar-money between the two. So, when Margarito won, Oscar was never really planning to fight him, I suspect.
This. Neither Margo or PWill had the draw of Cotto or Pac. So, when the Plaster Blaster took out Cotto, Oscar looked for a new opponent, who ended up being Pac.
