Go to 3:28 to about 3:48...Floyd Sr. tells Dirrell when he blocks hooks to NOT put his hand against his face...saying "if a guy is throwing hard, he can shake you up".

I was surprised to hear this. Floyd Jr keeps his hands on his face when blocking hooks. I would think keeping your hand away from your face when blocking hooks would just mean the punch knocks your fist into your face which could also shake you up.
This came up in my gym by one of my HW's who asked me the same thing. Here's what I teach and I hope it helps you out.

I agree with Floyd Sr in that putting your glove to your face is not good because you will absorb the impact of the shot anyway. So you can do two things, you can separate your arm from your face to absorb the impact or you can brace the top of the glove (or bottom of the glove, where the fingers are, don't know if it's technically the top or bottom lol)) on your forehead and brace your elbow to your body. That creates a sort of a brace that takes all the power off of the shot and onto your forearm.

I'm sure Floyd has done what you have said but if you look closely to him catching hooks, he turns his face away and deflects the power, he's very good at that. That comes with years of experience though.
