    In this sentence it means that his guard remains the same and unchanged, and nothing has changed about it despite his experience. You're talking about boxing, right?

    I would say "..., didn't lower his guard at all" or "..., didn't lower his guard but remained still".

    I'd say "pour autant" could quite precisely be translated by "nevertheless".

    It means about the same as "n
