There is a lot of reason why Margarito didn't get the big names around 2005/2006, and Arum was partly to blame, not everybody was scared of Margarito. Boxers fight for money and when you get offered something better or you have another boxer that you can chase and make more money then logic suggest you would go after the big name, When Judah beats spinks he was looking at a payday in De la Hoya and Mosley he was looking up not down where Margarito was at the time, When Mayweather moved up he was looking at Mosley and De la Hoya, Hatton, Cotto etc because they bring more money to the table etc

De la Hoya was looking at Judah, Cotto, Mayweather etc too because it presents him with the options of making more money. Margarito IMO wouldn't well promoted by Arum at the time, he was ignored because Arum had other fighters who were hotter and bigger sellers, It was out of desperation that Arum started offering Mayweather a fight with Margarito for $8M and he uses that to build Margarito up a bit which finally helped but beforehand Arum didn't really concentrate on Antonio which sucks for him.
