I would suggest tying him up in his stall when he eats his feed, making sure he can reach it, and then tying him up while you groom with a hay net, then putting hay in front of the cross ties while you tack him up, and slowly reducing the hay/feed in favor of an area he likes to be groomed, they all have their spots. Decrease the hay and increase the grooming in that one area over time.
The other think is to make him know you are the boss, and I would do these things at the same time. You don't have a round pen, but you don't need one, you just need to move more yourself if you are in a field or pasture or whatever you have. Every time he is pushy, make him move, when he is nice, he can stand.
