From the FBHOF:
Max Parker Jr. traveled the world “calling fights,” as he liked to tell it. Over his 22 years as a referee, he called hundreds of fights, sharing the ring with fighters like Marco Antonio Barrera, Reggie Johnson, Saoul Mamby, Antonio Tarver, Junior Jones, and Roy Jones Jr. He was a member of the NBA, IBF, and the WBU, working championship bouts for all those organizations, as well as “calling fights” for the WBC, WBA, and IBO. Along the way, he also served as the Florida Boxing Commission’s assistant executive director. “It was an honor and a pleasure working with Max over the years,” said fellow referee and Hall of Fame Inductee, Brian Garry. “Our bond is for life.”

Inducted into the Florida Boxing Hall of Fame in 2009.
