Benjy Esteves Jr. was born in Milwaukee, Wisconisin in 1954 to Puerto Rican parents. He grew up in the Hell's Kitchen section of Manhattan. His brother Norberto, a retired New York City social services worker boxed, as did his uncle, featherweight Victor Melendez, a solid pro who compiled a 16-0-4 (0KOS) record between 1963-69. His two losses were decisions to Ismael Laguna and Carlos Teo Cruz, both of whom held world titles. His cousins Carlos Pacheco and Angel Nieves also boxed competitively. [1]

His refereeing career began 1982 when he joined the ranks of the amateur Boxing Federation of New York City under the tutelage of Frankie Martinez. Esteves Jr. served as the amateur “Chief of Officials” in New York for 5 years, and then relocated to New Jersey where he was “Chief of Officials” for 2 years before turning professional in 1992. As a professional referee, he was mentored by Larry Hazzard. Esteves Jr. primarily works bouts in the northeastern United States, but has also refereed internationally in Aruba, Panama, China, Canada, Mexico, Argentina, Russia, Germany, the Dominican Republic, Bermuda, the United Kingdom, Italy, and Poland. He is a member of the New Jersey Boxing Hall of Fame.
