Julio César Chávez, Jr. : biography

February 16, 1986 -

Julio César Chávez Carrasco (born February 16, 1986 in Culiacán, Sinaloa, Mexico) is a Mexican professional boxer and the former WBC Middleweight Champion. He is the son of retired four-time world boxing champion Julio César Chávez and older brother of welterweight Omar Chávez.

Early life

Chávez Jr. was born in the city of Culiacán, when his father held the WBC World Championship at super featherweight. His face became known to boxing fans when his father would take him and his brother Omar into the ring as children, before each of Chávez Sr.'s fights. As a teenager, Chávez Jr. endured some difficult moments, including a publicized relationship between his father and actress Salma Hayek and the consequential divorce of his parents. Chávez Jr. lived in relative obscurity until he announced that he would follow in the footsteps of his father and become a boxer.

Amateur career

Julio Jr.’s amateur career consisted of only two fights against former World Champion Jorge Páez's oldest son Jorge Páez, Jr.; both of the exhibitions bouts were shown on Mexican television.http://sports.yahoo.com/box/news;_ylt=Ai5d5LewYSe9lIqjpZxKa32UxLYF?slug=ys-iole_chavez_honors_legendary_father_060111
