Pac at the time was only signed on to fight Erik Morales for the third time, which would be promoted by Top Rank.

After Pac signed with Oscar, even Arum at first thought it was legit. Only after going through the Erik Morales 3 fight contract did Arum (or probably his lawyers) find a boilerplate clause in the fight contract that said that the fighter was not allowed to sign with a new promoter until after the fight. Only after Arum's lawyers found out about this fine print clause did Arum believe he had a legal claim to Pac's promotional rights. Prior to that, Arum thought he had legitimately lost Pac to Golden Boy.

So yeah Pac deserves some blame, but you need to put it in perspective. If even Arum, a Harvard lawyer, at first didn't even know that, due to some obscure fine print in the fight contract, Pac was prohibited from signing with a new promoter until after the fight, how the hell would you expect Pac to know?

If you don't believe me, all you have to do is dig up old articles from this site from 2006-2007 to see for yourself.
