Three months prior to fighting Louis, Baer lost the World Heavyweight Championship to James J. Braddock by a 15-round decision. It was one of the biggest upsets in boxing history.
Baer entered the fight against Louis with a broken right hand and a bone chip in his left wrist. His manager, Ancil Hoffman, pleaded with him to postpone the fight and get a specialist to examine his injuries. Baer was examined by Dr. William Healy, an orthopedic surgeon, at Johns Hopkins University Hospital in Maryland. Dr. Healy told Baer that his left wrist would heal over time, but his right hand should be operated on before he fought again. Baer decided to go ahead and fight Louis instead of having the operation. Just weeks before he was to meet Louis, Baer wrote his wife, "I hope to God my hand heals before the fight." Dr. Max Stern gave Baer several shots of Novocain in his right hand in his dressing room before the fight. However, the fight was delayed for 45 minutes due to rain, and the Novocain started to wear off by the time Baer entered the ring.

“Dynamite puncher,” recalled Jimmy Braddock about Max Baer. “If he hit you right, he’d knock you out in the third row…”
After Baer lost the title to Jimmy Braddock the heavyweight division was in shambles. Jimmy didn’t want to give Baer a rematch, at least not right away. Braddock had gotten to the top through dogged determination and a lot of luck. He wanted some time to enjoy being champ and cash in.
Max Schmeling asked Braddock for a shot, the papers were even signed, but Braddock claimed hand problems and the fight never happened. Schmeling was still ducking Baer and since Maxie was no longer champ, the Nazi leadership was not as interested in a rematch for their German Champion. If Baer wanted another shot at Braddock he would first have to beat Joe Louis, the up-and-coming young contender from Detroit.
So it was a match—Baer vs. Louis, set for Yankee Stadium on Sept. 24, 1935. Max set up his training camp in Speculator, New York. Baer was hesitant about the fight. He had seen Joe fight and knew his style. Louis’ way of doing things did not fit well with Baer. He was faster, threw more punches, and was a better boxer than Max. But Baer was a harder puncher and could take a punch better than Louis. Max had never been knocked down. He was primarily a knockout artist. Sure he had won fights by decision, but they were few and far between...
