Pound-for-pound boxing champ Manny Pacquiao has got some avid fans, including this mom who said she postponed her son’s appendectomy so she could see the boxer at Wild Card Boxing Club in Hollywood.
The mother who introduced her name as “Amy” and in her late 30’s said that she is not a horrible mom and that her son supported her. She also stressed that her husband is in the hospital taking care of the son.
“He probably has appendicitis, he’s in the hospital, but he knows how much Manny means to me so he said, ‘Go Mom’. He didn’t want to keep me back. They’re holding off so I can see Manny and take advantage of this opportunity. I’m not a horrible mom. He’s not in total danger. Dad’s there with him.”
Pacquiao will defend his WBO welterweight title against Mexico’s Juan Manuel Marquez for the third time this weekend in Las Vegas.
To the mom, we say, go girl! We know how important Manny is to you. We can only wish that you’re as equally important to Manny.
