Responding to a set of questions in party mouthpiece 'Murasoli', Karunanidhi recalled the veteran boxer's visit to his house in 1990 when he was Tamil Nadu chief minister.

"He visited my house with his wife and we had very warm discussions. Later he went around Anna Arivalayam (DMK headquarters)," the DMK chief recalled. Ali (74) died on Friday after a 32-year battle with Parkinson's disease.
