Schaaf weighed 200–210 lbs in his prime which was average in that era. In the 1930s he went 2 wins, 1 loss with Tommy Loughran, easily outpointed two future heavyweight world champions in Max Baer in their first fight in 1930 and James J. Braddock in 1931. He also outpointed future title challengers Young Stribling and Tony Galento in 1932.

During the second fight with Baer in 1932, however, Schaaf was knocked senseless two seconds before the final bell, which saved him from an official knockout, Baer won on points. It took several minutes for him to be revived. Schaaf complained of headaches thereafter, and some observers believe that he suffered brain damage.

Six months later, Schaaf fought the huge (250 lbs+) Primo Carnera, and suffered a knockout loss in the 13th round of 15. He fell into a coma, and was rushed to the hospital to undergo surgery. He died on Valentine's Day.
