HOLLYWOOD, 1969 | LIONEL ROSE, 20-year-old Aboriginal boxer, and ELVIS PRESLEY meet on the set of "The Trouble With Girls" ,1969. Elvis, a ready scrapper since his early days on the road, had picked up a strong interest in karate during his stint in the army. A certified black belt, he did his own fight sequences in his movies. There was a little light sparring - strictly for the camera - They parted as friends, the young boxer 'pleased as punch' by the encounter.
