Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao reclaimed his WBO welterweight title against Timothy “the Desert Storm” Bradley but it was his mom, Dionisia Pacquiao, that took the internet by storm.

During the fight, HBO has provided much attention to one person watching the game live at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas on Saturday- the PacMom.

HBO’s broadcast caught Dionisia’s, also known as Mommy D, expressive manner of praying while pointing finger at Bradley during the fight. It was later on touted by spectators as “voodoo hex”, “death fingers” and “spell-casting” against Bradley.

The video has gone viral and Mommy D claimed the 8th spot on the World’s trending topics on Twitter on April 13. Netizens, who were obviously entertained by the ringside antics of Mommy D, reacted on Twitter.




After the game and Pacquiao was declared the winner, Dionisia hugged Bradley inside the ring. Many believed that it was her way of removing the hex from him.


Whether Mommy D spelled a cast or not on Bradley, Pacquiao undoubtedly showed that he is still one of the world’s best fighters and will go down as one of the all-time greats.
