Manny Pacquiao mom Dionisia as popular as ever

Manny Pacquiao Mommy D

Manny Pacquiao holds his family in high regard, and nobody is held in higher esteem among his fans than his mother.

Manny’s mother, Dionisia, or “Mommy D” as she’s known, went viral during Pac-Man’s April fight with Timothy Bradley after she was shown on camera praying during the fight. What it really looked like was Dionisia putting a hex on Bradley:

Mommy D is a very religious woman and helped raise Pacquiao as a Catholic. However, Manny switched and became a protestant, which did not sit well with Dionisia, who blamed the switch in faith for her son’s loss to Bradley in the first fight between the two.

“That’s what he gets for changing his religion….Since the ‘Protestant’ pastors came into his life, he has not focus on his boxing.”

Just because she is a woman of faith does not mean Mommy D doesn’t like the D.

We wrote in August that Mommy D, who is 65, was living with her 40-year-old boyfriend. Manny was not happy with the relationship because he wants her mom to officially divorce her first husband.

What’s nice about Manny fighting in Macau is that it makes it easier for Mommy D to attend; she’ll be watching her son fight for just the fourth time.
