Max Baer fought Frankie Campbell and Ernie Schaff, whom both later died of injuries substained while boxing with Baer in the ring.

Frankie Campbell died of extensive brain injuries on August 25, 1930 at a nearby hospital after being knocked out by Baer. And eventually was convicted of manslaughter. He was acquitted of all charges.

Ernie Schaff died six months later after being hit with a weak jab by Primo Carnera. But his death was the result of damage inflicted during his bout with Baer.

Technically he did not kill anyone IN the ring, but arguably, he did inflict injury to the aforementioned fighters that lead to their deaths.
