I don't think he was actually giving too much thought for defense. He seemed to be using the outstretched left hand to gauge distance and the right was always set up for a punch.
He actually used to it land several right hands, some that might have actually rocked someone that wasn't nicknamed "Iron Head".

Frank Trigg said something to the effect that no one has used a guard like that since the 1930's. And it worked so well for him, too!sudo make me a sandwich!

yes, that guard's all wet. I'd pay some clams to see some rube try that guard against a modern pugilist. That would be the cats pajamas! He'd get the bum's rush unless he were fighting an absolute palooka! The later guards are the bees knees, so don't take any wooden nickles and use a modern guard and everything will be Jake. Now you're on the trolley!

His "Fetal Position Guard" on the ground was also quite effective.

A man who has carefully trained for brilliant tapping play, will find himself considerably out of it in case he is called upon to do any real work."

Or maybe that's just what lures them in for the kill. I can't remember.
