Fashion Model Alexis Chaparro By Emmanuel Sanchez Monsalve
UNITED STATES — International fashion model and professional boxer Alexis Chaparro was photographed in New York City by photographer Emmanuel Sanchez Monsalve.
The New York-native posed in a pair of Calvin Klein undies.
Chaparro has walked the runways for some of fashion’s biggest brands, starring in editorials, and gracing the covers of menswear magazines. But his rise in the modeling world has been an unorthodox one: Chaparro also happens to be a 3x national boxing champion.
Chaparro grew up in Ridgewood —a neighborhood in Queens. His father taught him how to box, and the inspiration quickly became an obsession. His mother saw his potential and enrolled him in NYC Cops and Kids boxing club, which became so much more than a gym.
