Omar Chavez (30-2-1, 22 KO’s) was once regarded as the most talented of the fighting sons of Mexican legend Julio Cesar Chavez. People’s thoughts on that have changed since Chavez lost twice to Jorge Paez Jr. Since the last loss, Chavez has fought twice and is looking to fight yet again this October.
In a recent Facebook post by Julio Cesar Chavez Sr., Sr. is in Toluca while Omar is preparing for his in ring return on October 19th.
Could his opponent be Michael Oliveira? The two have agreed to face each other but there is no listing on BoxRec or even on the Box-Azteca website (which is the network that will showcase Omar’s fight). Perhaps this fight will be just a stay busy fight as the fight with Oliveira gets built up a bit more so until then, his opponent is not yet known.
