Canelo’s Next PBC Fight On Amazon Prime Video Hits Roadblock Over ‘Purse Guarantee’ Disagreements

Canelo Alvarez’s next fight with PBC and Amazon Prime Video appears to have an obstacle with disagreements over a ‘purse guarantee.’

Canelo is coming off a victory over Jermell Charlo via a unanimous decision, the first of his three fights under PBC. Alvarez has been mentioned alongside David Benavidez, Terence Crawford and Jermall Charlo for his next fight. Reports indicate a date of May 4 for his next fight. Jermall Charlo and Terence Crawford are the likely next two opponents in that order. But so far, nothing is concrete over Canelo’s next fight, raising concerns that it may not happen over a disagreement about a purse guarantee. 

That would be a massive blow to PBC, which recently signed a multi-fight deal with Amazon Prime Video. Their first card featuring Keith Thurman vs Tim Tszyu for March 30 produced a mixed response, given that Thurman last fought two years ago. Tszyu’s WBO Junior Middleweight Title is also not on the line, downplaying the significance of the fight.

Alvarez’s side has yet to comment on this, but it has left concerns over the Mexicans’ next move.
