What to do when your opponent is pushing up on you?
Basically Peterson was pushing Khan up hard as he could whenever he had the chance. So basically what were Khans options?
If you can't push off, how the **** can you fight? the only possible alternatives are to clinch and wait for the ref to break you up, or to punch to the back of the head...
So what should Khan have done?

Maybe try and turn him and land some shots, he does have much faster feet. If Khan doesn't know how to do that then its his fault.

You gotta have an inside game. Amir don't have it. He should have thrown uppercuts when peterson was pushing up on him like that. Hooks to the body, make him pay for pushing on you. Amir fought beautifully outside but, inside he looked a mess.

The ref backed Khan into a corner, he struggles to throw punches up close since he has the arms of a gorilla, so being told to fight his way out everytime didn't help... it changed the course of the fight.

left hook, move to the left while pushing off with left hand after the punch lands(even if its on the guard), fire right uppercut if they turn to follow. control range with jab. repeat.

Learn how to jab better so the fight remains at distance at a more regular basis since he has poor inside fighting but if you get crowded and can't push off there's your footwork ,uppercuts or hold and attack the body away from the refs view.
