Because his pre-Douglas opponents where too busy running for their lives to generate any offense of their own. For the record, post-Douglas Evander Holyfield DID go to Tyson's body.....and put Mike on his arse with a body-shot.

correct... Tysons opponents was looking to survive the onslaught and very few could or did operate their own game plan

You do realize when you go to the body you leave yourself open upstairs right? Tyson also had a square compact body that doesnt look like you could do much damage to it anyway.

Newsflash: Berbick lasted a round and a half before chicken-dancing his way onto YouTube. Bruno spent most of HIS effort cowering on the ropes.

Its a risk/reward type situation and dropping your hands against a young Tyson never seemed very rewarding.
