The Beatles had only been in America for 11 days when they found themselves herded into Miami Beach's 5th Street Gym for a photo op with a 22-year-old boxer named Cassius Clay. It was February 18th, 1964, and the band was in town to film their second appearance on the Ed Sullivan Show. Clay was prepping for his big fight with Heavyweight Champion Sonny Liston, but he was a 7-1 underdog and anxious to drum up ticket sales and press attention. The Beatles were happy to meet a champion boxer and get their pictures in the papers, but the group let it be known they wanted to meet Liston and not, as John Lennon said, "that loudmouth who's going to lose."
