I still feel body work is the best way to counter it.
I agree. See, Floyd is a highly reactive fighter, he is going to block first and then attack. If you can force him into rolling the left shoulder by feinting a right, his left oblique and kidney will be exposed for a right hook to the body.
Floyd won't lower the left elbow because he would rather take the body punches than the right to the face.
If you think about it, hitting him in the shoulder would be pretty effective as well because it is always tensed up because of the way he keeps his elbow up to protect his face when rolling a punch. This is important because it means that he can't hit you with the jab and the muscle is just a sitting target. You keep tagging that shoulder, it might not stop his defense but it'll stop his jab after a few rounds.
