So James Toback‘s documentary Tyson was all the rage at Cannes. Well, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie were all the rage, but this film about Mike Tyson‘s life and career did get a favorable reception and win an award.

But . . . was it full of lies?

Former Tyson manager Steve Lott claims the answer is yes. (Thanks to reader Xavier for sending this our way). Lott, who was in the Tyson camp from 1985 to 1988, says the boxer’s pants are on fire in numerous spots throughout the film.

The bad news is, whether Tyson and Toback are stretching the truth or whether Lott simply cultivates a sour blend of grapes remains to be seen.

The good news is, our childhood Nintendo memories of Mike Tyson’s Punch-Out remain pristine and altogether untainted. (Hey, that game was fun).

    Steve Lott why can’t you shut up your pathetic claims.
    Get a life !!!!!!!!You are a pathetic loser who is outside boxing world with zero fighters in your list,so you use your pathetic obsession about Tyson trying to make him look bad.
    You no nothing about Tyson,nobody loses time with your mindless allegations .Tyson fired you cos you are an incompetent useless former assistant manager.
    a parasite is always a parasite and he chose others,get over it,try to make your own money with other fighters.
    You can’t,cos you are incompetent i forgot,sorry.
    Where are your fighters?
    You have none.lol
    Really,find a doctor,your pathetic threats to Tobback saying that you would show your correspondence with him to Tyson shows how delusional you are about this.lol
    Tyson can’t stand you,that’s why he kicked your butt.Get over it.
    This documentary is real and great where Tyson explains to the audience the truth about his life,but a pathetic loser like Lott wants people to believe that Tyson was a saint during Cayton’s period.
    This idiot barely had contact with Tyson during 85-88 and everyone already saw his retarded rant about Givens, King,Finkel and everyone that worked with Tyson and prevented this vermin to win more money at Tyson’s effort in the ring.
    Get a life,get a job.You are a loser and nobody cares about your pathetic rants.
