That's what I always say about Tyson. Not just the "peek a boo" thing, but everything about his style including the heavy side-to-side head movement & the "punches in bunches" offense. It's not a style that would work well past the age of, say 25, unless a fighter has really unusual genes.

- That's one main reason you can't judge Tyson by his later fights. (along with the loss of Rooney, the influence of King, and his own personal demons.)
