Manny Pacquiao is a very religious and spiritual man, and it’s no surprise he got it all from his mom, Dionesia.
In fact, if you watched the rematch between Pac-Man and Timothy Bradley on Saturday night in Las Vegas, there’s no way you missed Pacquiao’s mom seemingly placing a hex on Bradley.
HBO cameras flashed to Dionesia during the fight and showed her holding a cross in her hand and reciting what appeared to be some sort of prayer while also pointing a finger towards the ring.
Was she putting a curse on Bradley? Praying for her son? Who knows? But I do know that was some interesting placement with her middle finger, I’ll tell you that much:
Regardless of whatever she may have been doing during the fight, it was nice to see Dionesia go up to Bradley and give him a hug after the fight.
Though she probably was praying for her son to win, she most likely wanted to see both fighters escape without suffering an injury. Her son ended up with a cut above his left eye from a headbutt, but that was about it. It was probably the exact outcome she wanted.
