In Act II, Scene iv, it is Tybalt, Juliet's cousin, who sends Romeo a challenge for a duel.  Tybalt tends to be hot-tempered, and he is angry that Romeo came to the Capulet party the night before uninvited.  It was a masked ball, but Tybalt was able to recognize Romeo by his voice.  When the more benevolent Lord Capulet refuses to make Romeo leave, Tybalt storms out in fury, and vents his anger by issuing the challenge the next day.
