Chavez wore a black ribbon on the night of September 21, 1985 during his world title defense against Dwight Pratchett[?], to honor all his countrymen and women who fell during the Mexico City earthquake of September 17, 1985.

Chavez's relationship with boxing promoter Don King was always controversial. After being threatened by a gang that his son would be kidnapped, Chavez became one of the first people to denounce the Kidnappings Of Famous People's Relatives in Mexico during the middle and late 1990s.
