Ali wore the the robe as he entered the ring against Ken Norton on March 31, 1974.  The television commentator for the fight said: “That robe was given by Elvis Presley at his last fight in Las Vegas. It cost around $3000 and it’s Ali’s pride and joy On the back it says ‘The People’s Choice’ in rhinestones and jewels and he loves it.” Ali lost the fight and never again wore the robe considering it bad luck.
