No gaurd, the widest punches ever thrown. A slow version of the dutty wine dance for head movement, in a sparring match no less..what is that supposed to prove?
His guard is low because in those days, guys would typically protect the body a lot more and rely more on slipping punches to the head. Which Dempsey did brilliantly. We're talking 80 odd years ago and his bobbing and weaving is still pro.
