#wiki Post...Sonny Liston

As I thought of an analysis/critique of a Wikipedia article, it didn't take long to pick a subject. I am a big fan of the history of boxing and a "sweet science" aficionado. One of the more fascinating, yet mysterious figures in boxing history is Sonny Liston. There's no consensus on his true age so I figured it would be interesting to take a look at what "wikipedians" had to say about the controversial pugilist.

The post was told from a neutral point of view with verifiable facts, as far as boxing and what took place inside the ring were concerned. However, added verifiability was given to Liston's date of birth, as that has always been a point of contention. The two main sources listed to justify his age were census records and quotes from family members.

I think this article is a good example of the core principles of Wikipedia regarding content policies, in that there is no bias in the entry with verified facts regarding a difficult subject.
