I typically do roll with the punch with my head and body as the hook lands, but with my glove against my face. I feel the impact, but I've never been closed to rocked catching hooks like that. DISCLAIMER: I can't recall ever catching one thrown full power this way.

But in the beginning of this video, you can see what I am talking about as Floyd demonstrates it. He doesn't just eat the punch with his glove on his face, he rolls his body and head with the punches to take some sting off.

I noticed Broner caught a lot of hooks this way against DeMarco as well. His glove was very plainly planted against his face. I would think this is one technique that would be even safer as an amateur with headgear than as a pro.
Believe me, you can get knocked out catching a shot to your face like that. What Floyd Sr said was 100% true and I wouldn't recommend it but again, you do have to roll and absorb the impact of the shot. I prefer the methods I describe because it insures that you don't take the blow to the face and possibly the chin.

One thing is fighting with headgear and big gloves another is getting hit with 10-12oz gloves in the pro's. Your feet also play a big part in absorbing the shots as well, when you learn to move inside the pocket, you can take a lot off of shots.
