This fight will be presented by PBC Promotions. They are well known for putting out their fights on FOX PPV. But this time, Alvarez vs Plant’s fight won’t take place on FOX, instead, it’ll happen on Showtime PPV.

Mike Coppinger reported the same on his official Twitter handle. He wrote, “Sources: Canelo Alvarez-Caleb Plant on Nov. 6 will be a Showtime PPV. The vast majority of PBC’s major PPVs have been carried by Fox recently. PBC’s deal with Fox expires at the end of the year, though Fox holds a network option for a fourth year.”
