...........Could have been a liscensing issue; I remember a story about a baseball player who was supposed to say a little slogan for Post Toasties in a pregame interview, and he slipped up, saying how much he owed Wheaties for his great year at the plate.


.............The people at Post were not amused.

I believe Ray Leonard was on a box at some point in the 80's. At anyrate, there may be reasons other than just recognition that are the cause for only some fighters being on the cover. I'm sure it goes deeper than just general mills co. not feeling as though some guys aren't worthy.

I've always wondered what Butterbean's idea of the breakfast of champions is.
