Born: Maximillian Adalbert Baer
Heavyweight Champion 1934-35
Possessing perhaps the most powerful right hand in
heavyweight history, Max Baer was a flashy performer who wisecracked and
clowned his way through his career. Although he never fully realized his
tremendous potential, Baer won the heavyweight title, and his showmanship
entertained an America rocked by the Great Depression.
