Mommy Dionisia explains the ‘hex finger’ during the Pacquiao-Bradley fight


Dionisia Pacquiao denied that she was putting a hex on Timothy Bradley during the latter's fight with her son, Sarangani Rep. Manny Pacquiao in Las Vegas Nevada on April 13.

In a Monday report on GMA News' “24 Oras”, Mommy Dionisia explained that what she was really doing was praying intently.

“Yung pagturo ko sa kamay ko, sa iba ay pangit daw 'to,” Mommy Dionisia said. “Sa'kin hindi naman... itong sa gitna ang Diyos na Ama. Malaking suporta ito sa lakas ng loob ng anak ko... Yun ang ginagawa ko. Sabi ko, 'Lakasan mo Lord ang anak ko.'”

Videos and photos of Mommy Dionisia chanting and seemingly directing her middle finger towards the ring during the Pacquiao-Bradley fight had gone viral all over the planet.

Holding a rosary and a prayer booklet, others opined that Mommy Dionisia was praying while some said she was hexing Bradley which resulted in his loss.

“Sumisigaw ako, tumbahin mo na si Timothy Bradley! Andito ako, susuporta ako sa'yo! Tumbahin mo na,” Mommy Dionisia said.

But after the fight, Mommy Dionisia let her motherly instincts take over. She climbed into the ring and hugged Bradley.

“Sabi ko kay Bradley nga, 'I'm sorry Bradley, no win ka. I'm sorry Bradley.' Ang sabi niya, 'No problem, mama,'” Mommy Dionisia recounted.

Mommy Dionisia said she was overwhelmed by the support shown her son by fans.

“Maraming nagsisigawan na, 'Manny! Manny!' Tuwang tuwa ako. Lalong lumakas ang loob ko,” she said. — Elizabeth Marcelo/DVM, GMA News
