Oxen is the plural of ox (unlike foxes which is the plural of fox).  Unfortunately, many nouns do not simply take an s or es to become plural.  There are many irregular plurals in the English language.

Exs: child-children,  goose-geese, wolf-wolves, leaf-leaves

Wolf and leaf do require es, but only after the  f  has been replaced with a  v.

Fish, sheep and deer are a few examples of words that stay the same for both singular and plural forms.
