Ibn Ali got emotional as he accepted his award from Atlantic City. He gave God recognition and thanked his mother, holding back tears.

The boys from the fight even joined Ali at the event, taking stage next to him.

“When I was young I grew up in the projects. When I would get on punishment she would make me read books. I’m crying because this whole situation deeply saddens me. The fact that it’s unbelievable. This should be very believable. This should be a norm and it should be regular,” Ali said.
