Julio Cesar Chavez
Mexican professional boxer (retd) Julio Cesar Chavez Gonzalez was born on July 12, 1962 in Ciudad Obregon, Sonora. He grew up in Culiacan, Sinaloa, thought spent most of his childhood in Mexicali, Baja California, for a few years. He fought out of Culiacan and once said, I will always live in Culiacan, because my whole life has been down there.
Chavez has successfully attained world titles in three weight divisions: WBC Super Featherweight (1984), WBA Lightweight (1987), WBC Lightweight (1988), WBC Super Lightweight (1989), IBF Light Welterweight (1990), and WBC Super Lightweight (1994). Chavez also remained unbeatable for 89 bouts prior to his first retirement, maintaing a record of 104-5-2 (80 knockouts). World champions defeated by Chavez include Jose Luis Ram?rez, Rocky Lockridge, Meldrick Taylor, Roger Mayweather, Sammy Fuentes, Hector Macho Camacho, Juan Laporte,Tony Lopez, and Frankie Randall, who, just four months before, took away the WBC light welterweight belt from Chavez. He was defeated by only two champions: Oscar De La Hoya and Kostya Tszyu. He was held to a draw by two others: Pernell Whitaker and Miguel Angel Gonzalez.
On March 4, 1981, Chavez came across Miguel Ruiz in Culiacan in his 12th fight. At the end of the first round, Chavez made a swing that knocked out Ruiz. Since the bell for ending the round had already been sounded, thus, the blow was considered a disqualification in the ring and consequently, Ruiz was declared the winner. Nevertheless the next day, after additional analysis, the Mexican boxing commission upturned the result and announced Chavez as the winner. Ramon Felix, Chavez's manager, was also a member of that commission.On September 13, 1984, Chavez won his first championship, the vacant WBC super featherweight title, by knocking out fellow Mexican Mario Azabache Mart?nez at the Grand Olympic Auditorium in Los Angeles, California. Mart?nez had been the betting favorite in the bout. He magnificently secured the title ten times to himself, including a knockout over future champion Roger Mayweather.
After attaining the titles, Chavez got occupied in a busy series of title defenses and non-title fights, also comprising of a victory over rival Hector Camacho in 1992. In 1993, during a fight with Greg Haugen, he ridiculed Chavez's 82-fight victorious line as consisting mostly of Tijuana taxi drivers that my mother could have knocked out and insisting that There aren't 130,000 Mexicans who can afford tickets to see the fight in Estadio Azteca. But, it was an unfortunate moment for Haugen when he was proven wrong, twice infact since 136,274 showed up to set a record for fight attendance, and they watched Chavez drop Haugen quickly and then pull back with the obvious aim of punishing him for his despicable remarks. Conversely, the referee had seen enough by the fifth round and stopped it for a TKO victory for Chavez. After the fight, Chavez asked Haugen about his Tijuana taxi drivers remark, and in its reply, Haugen sportingly said, ?They must have been tough taxi drivers. In 2001, after he won a fight against Terry Thomas in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico, Chavez retired from boxing. Nevertheless, on November 24, 2003, he went back in the ring to avenge his earlier loss to Willy Wise, knocking Wise out in two rounds in Tijuana, Mexico.
In April 2004, Chavez went back into the ring, for what he asserted again that this one would be his last. The fight, moniker Adios, Mexico, Gracias (Good-bye, Mexico, Thank you), was won by Chavez against Frankie Randall, by a ten round decision.Once again, on May 28, 2005, Chavez went into a boxing match with Ivan Robinson and defeated him in ten rounds at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California, the city where he had won his first world title 21 years before.On September 17, 2005, at the U.S. Airways Center in Phoenix, Arizona, Chavez suffered a TKO loss to little-known Grover Wiley, retiring in his corner before the start of the 5th round, apparently due to an injury to his right hand. After the bout, Chavez told his promoter, Bob Arum, that this time he was definitely retiring from boxing.
Ultimately, Chavez retired maintaining a record of 108 wins, 6 losses and 2 draws, with 87 knockouts. He holds records for most unbeaten defenses of world titles (27) and most title fights (37). Chavez also won the second best winning streak (89-0) of an unbeatable boxer in boxing history, second only to 'Sugar' Ray Robinson. According to ESPN he was the 24th greatest boxer in history. His son, Julio Jr., is also a professional boxer.
On the night of September 21, 1985, Chavez wore a black ribbon, during his world title defense against Dwight Pratchett, to honor all his countrymen and women who died during the earthquake that had hit Mexico City two days earlier.Apart from that, interestingly, he had a boxing videogame with his brand for the Super Nintendo.
