Julio César Chávez

Three-division champion

Considered the greatest fighter in Mexico's rich boxing history, Chavez captured world titles at super featherweight, lightweight and junior welterweight during a panoramic 25-year career. A relentless pressure fighter with devastating punching power and a granite chin, Chavez amassed a professional record of 89-0-1 before losing the 140-pound championship to Frankie Randall in 1994, subsequently reclaiming the title in a rematch. He retired in 2005 with a professional record of 107-6-2 with 88 knockouts.
