Boxing champ Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. -- son of the legendary Julio Cesar Chavez -- will have to fight to stay out of jail ... 'cause he was just charged with DUI stemming from an arrest earlier this year.

TMZ has learned ... the L.A. City Attorney has decided to hit Chavez with 3 misdemeanor charges ... 2 for drunk driving and 1 for driving without a valid license.

If convicted on all counts, JCC could face up to a year in county jail and a $1,000 fine.

He's due back in court to face the judge later this month.

Ok so my comment has nothing to do with this story but i just read a story on Ice t' s wife Coco being molested by a ghost then you guys took it down right when i picked up the phone to tell my friend about it. wut's up with that...we just wanted to laugh at that skunk..where i'm from that is a taboo and dis 8itch is publicly talking about it. In africa voodoo spirits can make u their night wife, and she thinks it's cool...she is insane pls put that story back up TMZ, my friends don't believe me

First off, Innocent until proven Guilty so let's back off a bit, shall we? And I'd say the likelihood of him getting the charges dropped is 75%. The uber-rich can afford the high priced lawyers that will most assuredly get these charges dropped.

A year in jail or a $1,000 fine. Neither of which will happen nor will he learn from. Some star-struck judge will give him a break.
