Anything is possible as long as it does not contradict logic, & some understanding of our world & the facts & what is rational changes over time. But it is highly unlikely Liston was born earlier than the early 30's-certainly way earlier is highly implausible. I have copied much detail that is heavily citationed, showing how census, family & even Liston's own comments support a fairly narrow range of credible birth dates. What you cite-even if you show a source about one of his siblings contradicting all other family members-is not credible evidence. IF that was true & Liston was born at the end of WW1, then he would have been at minimum 45 when he first fought Ali/then Clay. And fought into his 50's. And be unaccountably missed by the 1920 census. And if born early in WW1, could have been 50 by 1964! None of this is at all plausible. Also the timeline of him being a kid & running away from his Father would make no sense. Many people look somewhat older than they are-which due to hard living including Liston's drinking tends to be easier than looking younger. I can show you many photos, including of athletes, who aged prematurely. Here is one pitching legend & alcoholic when he was in the Major Leagues-& he did not even have the "advantage" of being obese or bald, both of which tend to make folks look older.
