Default Peekaboo style effectiveness as a southpaw?

Hey fellow boxers I've been wondering something and I'd like other knowledgeable people's input on. Would the high pressure Peek-a-boo style (created by Cus D'Amato; popularized by Mike Tyson) be as effective for a southpaw boxer facing an orthodox boxer? Would the ease of exchanging powerful straight punches take away from the effectiveness of this style?
Theres been a few southpaw boxers that have used the Peekaboo style but none have been as high pressure or successful as tyson.
Examples of these fighters:
Ruslan Chagaev
Winky Wright (defensive based)
Looking for opinions, thoughts, and helpful input. If your gonna bash this topic GTFO my thread.
