MANILA, Philippines – Manny Pacquaio won his boxing match but his mother Dionisia Pacquiao has just taken over the Internet. This is after a video of her praying during Manny's match against Timothy Bradley at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas on Sunday (Sunday afternoon, April 13 in Manila time) became viral.

A video of Dionisia — which, in turn, was taken from HBO's broadcast of the highly anticipated boxing match — became the toast of the Internet shortly after Manny's win against Bradley thanks to the 64-year-old's unusual and very expressive manner of praying.

Netizens have dubbed Dionisia's “spell-casting” prayer a number of names, from “death fingers” to “voodoo hex.”

After the match, Dionisia was seen hugging Bradley inside the boxing ring. Many joked this was Mommy D's way of removing the hex from the American boxer.

Others took the joke to the next level by referencing other pieces of pop culture in their Mommy D tweets.

The quote was said by Anne Curtis' character to Derek Ramsay's in the 2011 movie “No Other Woman.”
