Default Proper Defensive Guard?

I'm curious to know what you guys think about certain defensive guards. I guess the standard one would be keeping your hands up at your chin with your jab hand slightly ahead of your other hand. I find that when I'm sparring though that that guard is not that effective for me. While I can block/parry my opponents jab and jab back, I have a hard time blocking power shots. I know guys like Winky, Clottey, and Mohammed Abdullaev use a high guard that covers their face completely. Any tips on how I can use my guard effectively to block punches? When I work with my coach he mainly recommends rolling the punches and countering, but I find in the ring I'm not ready for that. I just need to be able to cover up and let the guy punch out a bit and then come back with something.
