Maximilian Adelbert "Max" Baer (February 11, 1909 November 21, 1959) was an American boxer of the 1930s, one-time Heavyweight Champion of the World, actor, entertainer, professional wrestler and referee.

One of the most colorful figures of his day, Baer enjoyed life in the limelight, often at the expense of his training. He was the brother of twice World Champion boxing contender Buddy Baer and father of actor Max Baer, Jr., known to two generations as Jethro Bodine of the Beverly Hillbillies.

He is rated #22 on Ring Magazine's list of 100 greatest punchers of all time.
