Jones was favored to win a rematch against Antonio Tarver on May 15, but Tarver knocked him out at 1:41 in the second round. That makes Jones 49-2 lifetime. Looks like the EA curse to me![/quote]
I don’t agree. This isn’t like Mike Vick’s (almost) season ending injury last year. I mean, if the Ravens don’t win the Superbowl this year, shall we blame the Madden Curse then? Tiger lost a couple tournaments last year right? Is it because of the curse?
I say we only blame “a curse” if something unusual happens. Yes, a guy with Jones’ record - losing is unusual, but it’s going to happen in the course of boxing, eventually, right? Now, if he fell down a flight of stairs or was eaten by a Rhinocerous, that’s a curse!
EDIT: I’d also say “curse” if he was undefeated. But this is loss #2. Who cares about loss #2?
