You can use both of them, since you're probably on the inside at that moment. Don't pull down your arms, that will leave your face open. Instead hunch a little so you cover both your face and body, and don't bring the right elbow too close, as you'll open yourself up for a liver shot.

Or you could slightly twist your upper body and not move your arms at all, if you know what I mean. That also gives you opportunity to come back with something (if you twist to the left you're in perfect position for a left hook or uppercut for example), which is nice. The moment you feel something tapping your elbow, the hand attached to that elbow can counter. Tap on right elbow? Throw a short and crisp right hand inside whatever punch he'll follow up with.

Not sure if I'm making much sense, I'm feeling a little vague today
