My name is Muhammad Ziyad. I was Muhammad Ali’s best friend. This he said to many people on many occassions. I brought Muhammad Ali to Memphis that year as I did on other occassions to promote my organization. I’m the gentleman standing to Muhammad Ali’s right in this photograph. I am an Elvis fan and so was Muhammad Ali. I brought Ali to the Meditation Garden so that “we”…he and I, could pay tribute to Elvis Presley. We had just left the tribute that I took him to regarding Elvis at the University of Memphis . I promised George Klein that I would surprise the fans and bring Ali by. I called EPE and contacted Jack Soden and he said, “Come on by”
Hi Mohammed: Thanks for sharing your memories with us.
