It was the revenge of the Pacman against Bradley. I spent my afternoon watching apprehensively the twelve rounds of the fight between Pacquiao and Bradley in the arena. Hey, it felt like that the heat at MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada was brought in my room. Oops, it was not to my dismay coz Pacquiao did it this time! Manny Pacquiao was able to convince the judges as he defeated Timothy Bradley to become the WBO welterweight champion on Saturday in their rematch.
Scores were 116-112, 116-112 and 118-110 for Pacquiao.
Bleacher Report scored the contest 116-112 for Pacquiao.
Congratulations, Manny!!! Well done!!!
Manny’s ever supportive mother, Mommy Dionisia’s reactions really caught the camera and she never failed to add humor to the tension in the arena. I couldn’t help crack on the look at her face. The commentators even mentioned that she hexed Bradley and added “maybe it’s a Filipino curse!” (of course not 😦 )
Well, as a mother Mommy Dionisia was so caught up with her emotions but I couldn’t help admiring her for wearing the Filipiniana (Filipino national costume for women) and holding the rosary. A religious woman like Mommy Dionisia wouldn’t dare to hex Bradley. Nonetheless, she still looked good with what she was wearing. Aside from that, it was admirable of her showing great love for her son by supporting Manny and be there all the way to Las Vegas. Indeed, her prayers for her son was answered.
At the end when Manny’s victory was announced, Mommy Dionisia hugged Bradley and the commentators even laughed a little with her kind gesture towards her son’s opponent. One commentator said, ‘it’s nice to see that Mrs Pacquiao take the hex off him…‘ LOL Though Pacman is a good and witty boxer but this match was not like what I’ve seen before. What made this fight spectacular was Mommy Dionisia’s presence in the arena!
