For the past two years, 14-year-old Chantel Navarro has been training six days a week with her father, former professional boxer Ignacio Navarro, most recently at the Eddie Heredia Boxing Club in East Los Angeles. Every day, her father picks her up from school and they head to the gym. She’s won nine of her 12 matches and is a two-time national champion.
While Chantel is the first female boxer in her family, she comes from a long line of boxers. Her uncle, José Navarro, competed in the 2000 Summer Olympics. Look out for Chantel in the 2024 Summer Olympics in Paris.
