The whole thing about the 'peek-a-boo' style is that it is a square up style. Patterson moved away from it after the first Johannsson fight and eventually abandoned it. Tyson stayed squared up throughout his career; he also started standing straight up, became predictable in his attacks, and his reflexes slowed some. So he got hit more.
