Omar Alonzo Chávez Carrasco (born January 4, 1990), best known as Omar Chávez, is a Mexican professional boxer and the current WBC Youth Intercontinental welterweight champion.
Omar was born in the city of Culiacán, Sinaloa, Mexico. He's the son of legendary boxing champion Julio César Chávez and his then-wife Amalia Carrasco, and brother of former middleweight champion Julio César Chávez, Jr. Omar's face became known to boxing fans when his father would take him and his older brother, Julio Jr. into the ring as children, before each of Chávez Sr.'s fights.
