MANILA, Philippines – Dionisia Pacquiao, popularly known as “Mommy D,” stole the show during her son’s highly anticipated rematch against Timothy Bradley Jr. Saturday night in Las Vegas (Sunday in Manila).
Manny Pacquiao put on an impressive display against Bradley, winning a unanimous decision, but “Mommy D” also trended worldwide for her antics during the fight.
“Mommy D” was seen feverishly praying while her son fought, gesticulating wildly and pointing at the ring.
But once the fight was over and Pacquiao was announced the winner, Dionisia climbed the ring and was seen talking to Bradley.
“Masaya ako, dahil ang mama ko, naghingi din ng sorry kay Bradley,” Pacquiao revealed on Monday on "Umagang Kay Ganda." “Nag-apologize (siya), na walang personalan.”
“Nag-sorry naman si Mommy D,” he added.
Dionisia briefly embraced the defeated Bradley after the fight as well.
Bradley lost for the first time in his professional career.
