About Julio Jr.

Julio César Chávez Carrasco (born February 16, 1986 in Culiacan, Sinaloa), known in the English-speaking world as Julio César Chávez, Jr., is a Mexican boxer, the son of legendary boxing champion Julio César Chávez González and then-wife Amalia Carrasco. Chávez Jr. was born when his father was the WBC world Junior Lightweight champion.

His face became known to boxing fans when his father would take him and his brother into the ring as children, before each of Chávez Sr.'s fights.

Chávez Jr. lived in relative obscurity until he announced that he would follow in the footsteps of his father and become a boxer. After a relatively short amateur career, he began to box professionally. Many of his fights have been held during boxing programs that have been headed by his father; he has also been featured on the undercards of many major pay-per-view fights. He is considerably taller than his father (5 feet 10.5 inches).
