When and where was this taken? Wasn’t Elvis here visiting a boxing match of Mohammed Ali? Maybe somewhere in '74? What's the exact date and destination?

This is from Nashville in May 1971 -- RCA had booked a week of sessions.

There are several more examples in Paul's wonderful Candid Central section of the FECC site.

Two months earlier Elvis, Priscilla and various pals attended a live, close-circuit broadcast in Memphis of the famous Muhammad Ali - Joe Frazier heavyweight title fight, held March 8, 1971 in New York.

Doc, you're absolutely right on this photo and here's a shot of Elvis and Priscilla at the March 8, 1971 fight between Muhammad Ali and Joe Frazier.

Considering EP was in Memphis and the bout in NYC, then it would had to have been one hell of a zoom lense on dem TV cameras.
