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

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