THE CHAMP & THE KING The DVD contains The Story Of The Robe 'Black Superman' by Johnny Wakelin Elvis In a Fighting Mood Ali Talks Elvis Muhammad Ali dodges 21 punches in 10 seconds ... Muhammad Ali speaks at Elvis Memorial Service Stand By Me by Muhammad Ali Bonus (Just) Muhammad Ali wearing the Robe Muhammad Ali vs. Joe Bugner (Ali wearing the robe in the ring + the full fight) Ken Norton vs. Muhammad Ali (Ali wearing the robe in the ring + the full fight) The special friendship between the King Of Rock 'N Roll', Elvis Presley and the 'Greatest of all time', boxing legend Muhammad Ali is as fascinating as it is lacking in detailed information. Here is what we do know ... On February 14, 1973 Elvis presented Muhammad Ali with an 'Elvis Style' robe emblazoned with the words, 'People's Choice' on the back in rhinestones and jewels. The wording was a mistake as Ali was known as the 'The Peoples Champion'. Elvis was very upset about this but it too late. Ali thanked Elvis for the robe then went directly to the Las Vegas Convention Center for his fight that night against Joe Bugner where he wore Elvis' robe for the first time. Often the story is told he did not wear it this night, but as you can see in the video clip below, he sure did, and he won the fight too! As an aside Sammy Davis Jr was ringside for the fight and bought into the ring post fight by Ali.
