You can duck downwards and come back up with a right uppercut to the head or body. (Toney-Jirov)

You can lean backwards and make them reach to counter over the top with a check-hook (Robinson-Fullmer (?))

You can turn your upperbody leftwards, slipping outside of the right hand, while landing your own straight simultaneously. (Mosley-Vargas)

You can parry it downwards hard and step in with a left hook up top (Marquez-Barrera)

You can roll with it towards the inside while timing a left hook counter over it (Donaire-Montiel)

You can duck down and land a straight right to the body with your left hand high (Morales-Barrera)

this guy knows boxing and can articulate it nicely
