Introduced by Harry Carpenter.

Max Schmeling had won and lost the heavyweight title by the time he came to meet Max Baer. This fight was of vital importance to both men. For Baer, only Schmeling stood between him and a shot at the heavyweight champion. For Max Schmeling it was an important step on the 'come-back' road.
New York City: June 8, 1933 - Max Schmeling v. Max Baer

Gene Tunney had retired undefeated champion and, as the 1920s ended and the 1930s began, two clear contenders emerged. They were matched in New York and speculation ran high: but the talk before the fight was nothing compared with the controversy after it. The title was won on a foul.
