MANILA, Philippines – Manny Pacquiao's mother is appealing for prayers for her son's safety and victory in his comeback fight Sunday.

Although Dionisia "Mommy D" Pacquiao is confident that her son will come out as the winner over the Mexican-American, she believes that prayers will help her son achieve victory.

“Sa tingin ko ko panalo tayo,” said Mommy D in an interview on TV Patrol.

“Ipagdasal lang natin, ipaabot ko lang sa ating mga kapwa Pilipino lalo na sa mga tinamaan ng trahedya, ipagdasal nyo at hintayin nyo sana ang tulong galing sa anak ko.”

“Ipagdasal nyo lalo na sa mga taga-Mindanao, sa Sarangani, lalo na sa Manila. Buong mundo, ipagdasal natin para manalo siya.”

Dionisia, a devout Catholic, is known to spend hours praying the rosary each time Pacquiao fights.

She flew with Pacquiao to Macau to support her son in his boxing comeback.
