Minute Maid Park was home to the Saul Canelo Alvarez and Julio Cesear Chavez Jr.'s pre-fight media tour.

The two are scheduled to fight in Las Vegas on May 6 under Oscar De La Hoya's Golden Boy Promotions. The tour is stopping in four cities: Mexico City, New York City, Los Angeles and Houston.

Fights are often sold on the trash-talking, and Thursday there was some of that.



Chavez Jr. offered some praise and then criticism of his opponent.

"I see a good fighter," said Chavez Jr. "He is more famous than a great fighter."

Through an interpreter, Canelo responded, "We will see. We will see May 6. If that is what he thinks, I hope he doesn't come over confident, because if he does, that is a big mistake."

Canelo wants to keep his strategy simple -- fight his fight.

"I'll prepare myself 100 percent, train hard, and use all my experience and talent inside that ring, and win," he added.
