Speculation that the mother of Manny Pacquiao placed a curse, (or hex), on Timothy Bradley during the live televised prize fight on HBO, April 12th has been buzzing on social media. Curses are an age old tradition in the Philippines dating back hundreds of years. The boxers mother, Dionesia Dapidran Pacquiao can be seen making, almost secretly, an incantation and then kneels down to point with a look of venomous anger, probably at Timothy Bradley. The curse seems to have worked, her son, Manny Pacquiao, went on to win the fight.
From Yahoo Sports:
Manny Pacquiao reclaimed the WBO welterweight title he'd lost to Bradley via dubious split decision on June 9, 2012. He proved he remains an elite boxer, using his angles, his footwork and his quick hands to win 10 of 12 rounds on one judge's scorecard and eight of 12 on the other two.
