Did Pacquiao's mom put a hex on Timothy Bradley?
Apr 13, 2014 at 1:08a ET
The Manny Pacquiao-Timothy Bradley rematch delivered on its promise -- it was a close back-and-forth battle, with both fighters out to prove the doubters wrong.
Pacquiao (56-5-2) attacked the previously unbeaten Bradley, dashing quickly around the MGM Grand Garden ring with an aggressive performance. Bradley fought back with his own brand of elusiveness, but Pacquiao kept up his quick punches -- with many landing -- while Bradley (31-1) faded down the stretch.
After 12 rounds of action, there was little controversy to speak of, as Pacquiao came out on top via a unanimous decision that most would agree was the correct decision.
But early on in the fight, all eyes were in the stands.
More specifically, all eyes were on Pacquiao's mom, Dionesia Dapidran-Pacquiao.
Dapidran-Pacuiao could be seen doing all she could to help will her son to victory, dealing with the stress of seeing her son in the ring in her own unique way.
In fact, she seemed to be doing her best to put a hex on Bradley. Just look at her in action:
She quickly became a Twitter sensation, with many calling her the star of the night.
Let's be honest, the REAL champ in all of this is Pacquiao's Mom. #PacquiaoBradley2— John Lai (@IAmJohnLai) April 13, 2014

Pacquiao's Mom is casting a spell on Bradley. She is giving him the evil eye or something. #PacquiaoBradley2— John Hernandez (@playerceo) April 13, 2014
