After the unpleasant news of Luca Toni’s house robbery, another sportsman, Julio César Chávez Carrasco, has been victim of a similar crime.
Julio César Chávez Carrasco, best known as Julio César Chávez Jr., is a Mexican professional boxer who held the WBC middleweight title from 2011 to 2012. Chávez Jr. is the son of retired boxing legend Julio César Chávez and older brother of Omar Chávez.
Boxing star Julio Cesar Chávez Jr. claims burglars ransacked his home in Los Angeles, taking roughly USD750,000 in jewelry and other valuables. 34-year-old Chávez Jr. believes the burglary took place last week while the family was out of town. It appears the intruders got into the home through a bathroom window, law enforcement sources said.
Chávez Jr. and his wife, Frida, believe the crooks snatched up several items, including a small safe that contained roughly USD600,000 in jewelry and designer purses. They also got around USD150,000 in other belongings from around the home, totaling USD750,000. Cops are investigating but so far, no arrests have been made and no suspects have been identified. Chávez Jr., the former WBC middleweight champ is married to Frida Chávez, who recently gave birth to their 2nd child.
Frida was previously married to Edgar Guzman Lopez, the son of Sinaloa Cartel boss Joaquin Guzman, AKA El Chapo. Edgar Guzman was killed in 2008 when he was ambushed in a supermarket parking lot by a gang of rival cartel members. Police are aware of the family ties, but it’s unclear if the El Chapo connection has anything to do with the burglary.
The Chavez family is in our thoughts and prayers, as we wish law enforcement quickly finds the culprits who wrongfully entered their home and stole so many things. It will be interesting to see who the final suspect truly is, and if there are any relations to El Chapo which would certainly result in even more repercussions.
