At least in this fight, he had his hands low all the time. The moment he got dropped, he had his left at around waist height and his right at his chest. And that even after being clipped a couple of times before. That's not really a good striking defense.
He hand his hands low because I assume he was expecting the shot. The guy went three rounds with Constantinos Philippou without getting KO'd, I would guess he got better.
