Former middleweight boxing champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. has landed a knockout pad in Studio City for $2.8 million.

The wood-and-concrete contemporary, completed this year, features a lounge with a wet bar, mirrors with built-in televisions and a three-sided fireplace that divides the main floor.

Within the 4,788 square feet of open space is a modern kitchen with a large center island, a formal living room, dining room and a master suite with an en suite yoga studio for six bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms. Light oak flooring, pendant lighting and a floating steel-and-wood staircase lend a modern vibe to the interiors.

Outdoors, grounds lined with artificial turf contain a swimming pool and spa, a detached recreation room and an outdoor kitchen. A fire pit and sitting area are adjacent to the pool.

The property came on the market in April for $2.88 million. It previously sold for $899,000 in 2013, records show.

Eric Lieberman of John Aaroe Group was the listing agent, according to the Multiple Listing Service. Collette Canepa of Keller Williams Realty represented the boxer in the purchase.

Chavez, 29, is the son of six-time boxing champion Julio Cesar Chavez. He recently returned to the ring in April after a year layoff, losing to light heavyweight contender Andrzej Fonfara in nine rounds.
