DIONESIA Pacquiao stole the show on Sunday during Manny Pacquiao’s boxing match against Timothy Bradley in Las Vegas, drawing several reactions from everyone who watched the fight.
Moments after her son was declared the winner, ‘Mommy D’ climbed into the ring to talk to and congratulate Bradley before hugging the erstwhile undefeated American fighter.
Earlier in the bout, Mommy Dionisia was also caught on camera praying the rosary and pointing towards something.
The two moments by the popular mother of Pacquiao drew several reactions from social media, with cyber folks immediately immediately going to town creating memes.
Mommy D also drew resounding cheers from those who watched the bout on movie houses and on free viewing sponsored by local government units all over the country.
“The best part of the fight: Mommy Dionesia hugging Timothy Bradley,” said one Twitter user.
“Panalo si Mommy Dionesia,” said one tricycle driver in Parañaque City who watched the bout on a free viewing event sponsored by the local government.
Several social media users also speculated on what Mommy Dionesia and Bradley talked about.
Former Commission on Elections commissioner Gregorio Larrazabal wrote: “Congrats to Pacman!! My question is... What did Mommy Dionesia say to Bradley??? Looks like she had a few choice words for him! LOL!!”
“Mommy D just invited Tim Bradley over to the hotel for some lumpia, adobo and pansit. #filipinohospitality #filipinoheart,” wrote San Miguel Beermen cager Chris Ross.
After criticizing the judges in the first fight against Bradley, the usually outspoken Pacquiao matriarch kept her silence about her thoughts about the rematch.
