Last Sunday’s fight between Bradley and Pacquiao created quite a buzz in social media, not only because of Pacman’s reclaiming his WBO Welterweight title, but because of a certain clip involving his mother, Mommy Dionisia.
During the fight, the cameraman panned on Mommy D while she was watching the match. She was caught pointing at the ring while holding a piece of paper and a rosary and mouthing something.
According to Mommy D, she wasn’t doing a spell against former Champion Timothy Bradley.
She was saying the rosary and praying that nothing bad will happen to her son while inside the ring.
Mommy D also prayed that Bradley will be knocked out by her son. Pacquiao’s mom is a devoted catholic and believes in the power of prayer.
However, the video clip became viral and netizens even created memes out of it. Because of that video, Mommy D now has a new moniker, “Pambansang Daliri”, as her son is considered as the “Pambansang Kamao”.
