Worn by a corner man for six-time champion Julio Cesar Chavez, the official jacket showcases names and symbols readily identifiable in boxing circles. Tailored from red silk with green-and-white accents (in homage to Chavez's Mexican heritage), the short-sleeved zippered garment features "Chavez" embroidered across the back in white cursive. The left breast is home to familiar "Everlast" trademark, while the right breast features infamous promoter Don King's "DON" logo, complete with embroidered crown. Down the front white zipper area there is several blood stains which would have to be from Chavez since this was in his corner. Within the collar, dual flap tags respectively denote "Dry Clean Only" and size "M". Moderate wear is evident but over all it is in great shape and you would be foolish to try and take out the stains from the champ himself.
The "Everlast" and "Don" logo's are more indicative of Chavez fights from the late 1980s, as he more frequently fought in larger U.S. venues while Super Featherweight and Lightweight Champion.
