Muhammad Ali and Elvis Presley were both incredibly charismatic and incredibly successful. They also became incredibly good friends, with Muhammad Ali once saying ""Elvis was my close personal friend. He came to my Deer Lake training camp about two years before he died. He told us he didn't want nobody to bother us. He wanted peace and quiet and I gave him a cabin in my camp and nobody even knew it. When the cameras started watching me train, he was up on the hill sleeping in the cabin. Elvis had a robe made for me. I don't admire nobody, but Elvis Presley was the sweetest, most humble and nicest man you'd want to know." 

This tells the story of the first time the great men met.
