After months of anticipation, six-time world boxing champion and Mexican icon Julio César Chávez has opened “Julio César Chávez Campeones,” a boxing-themed restaurant and entertainment venue in Mesa, Arizona. Campeones (Champions) is a 30,000-square-foot venue featuring authentic Mexican food, a full sports bar, arcade games and a WBC Legends of Boxing Museum. In addition, the venue features an 1,700-seat event center for concerts, boxing matches, quinceañeras and community events. “The grand opening of Julio César Chávez Campeones is a special moment for me,” said Chávez. “It’s very gratifying to have the opportunity to open a place that the Hispanic community can be proud of.” The $4.5 million facility will employ 80 and is projecting revenues of $7-$10 million for the first year of business.
