Default What is this stance or guard called?

I need help figuring out the name a certain stance and example of a pro who uses it.

The gaurd has both hands directly in front of you with the knuckles facing your opponent.

The lead hand is out front eye level

Dominant hand is behind protecting your jaw.

I cant find a real picture of the guard so here is a terrible photo giving you some idea of what it looks like.

Thanks for the help.

i think ive seen Muhammad Ali used this aswell and from using it i find it good for bloking straight shots but you are open to hooks when using it but i find it good when your just at the end of there range.

I dunno if there's a name for it, but it's a parrying stance. It's good for parrying and deflecting punches. And since its out in front, it takes less arm movement to block either straight shots or roundhouse blows.

Foreman, Lyle, Bob Foster are some guys who used it.
