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.
On December 16, 2006 when Chávez was 16 years old he began his professional career, beating fellow debutant Jesús García with a first round knockout on the undercard which included his brother Julio in their native Culiacán. He won his next five straight fights in just over a year, four of which by knockout. Omar is signed with Bob Arum's Top Rank.
On July 18, 2009, Chávez, for the second time would face Marco Antonio Nazareth, who had won four and lost three coming into their bout. In the fourth round Nazareth had received many heavy blows and the referee decided to stop the fight. As Nazareth sat on his stool he collapsed. He was rushed to the local hospital where he underwent a three-hour operation to treat a cerebral hemorrhage, but he died four days later.
Omar has started to improve on his punching power and proved it with a 1st round K.O. of Eugenio Lopez. In September 2011, Chávez beat Alberto Martínez to win the WBC Youth Intercontinental Welterweight Championship.
On December 12, 2011, Omar Chavez faced Jorge Paez jr, son of Jorge "Maromero" Paez. Although Chavez was looking for the knockout, Paez jr. was more the boxer and manage to beat Chavez with a unanimous 10-round decision.
