It would be too big a plot complication, not to mention too much of a tech contradiction, if the Borg could somehow block a swinging fist.
Even then, I would imagine Borg durability would be pretty impressive compared to your standard humanoid H2H attacker. We've seen a drone take the butt of a phaser rifle from a fit human attacker with no apparent effect, so I imagine that in most cases anyway, a drone wouldn't need to block a fist anyway.

That could also imply that forcefields aren't a drone's only way of adapting to an attack as well.
