This past Saturday night, Manny “Pac-man” Pacquiao was able to land a win and reclaimed his WBO Welterweight title from Timothy “Desert Storm” Bradley after his controversial loss by unanimous decision in 2012. The fight between Pacquiao and Bradley were close to evenly matched. It was not easy to watch the Fighting Pride of the Philippines struggling halfway into the bouts. Luckily Pacquiao’s mom, Dionesia Dapidran-Pacquiao, was going in with her unrelenting support that night. Check it out:
While watching the fight on Saturday night, I had my own theories of what Pacquiao’s mom was doing: putting a spell on Bradley, miraculously disarming potential knockout punches that could land on Pacquiao, or granting Pacquiao the power of Hercules. For a minute, it was hilarious to watch, but I felt what she was doing was working. And besides, it didn’t matter what she was doing because truthfully a mother’s love for her son runs deep. All mothers who love their children would go an extra distance to ensure that their children are protected. Even if it means putting a hex on your son’s opponent. Also Pacquiao’s mom hugs it out with Bradley, post-fight.
No hard feelings though.
