Well, obviously there's been a talk or two, but I figure as long as it's going to take him to figure out how to rein it in a little, I might as well learn how to handle people like that.
Thanks to everyone, I'll see how it goes tomorrow.

I'm not talking to the boxer...I'm not looking at the boxer. A little pinch on the neck shows my Dominance!
I am the boxing whisperer
On a serious note...just tell him to go lighter in a polite way I'm sure that'll work

Is he standing square or turned in? If he's standing like a boxer, show him why Muay Thai is a different sport, and kick his lead leg to ribbon.

not all boxers stand side on.

Plus, a lot of side standing fighters know how to deal with leg kicks. Its the art not the style that would make him eat leg kicks. A square standing boxer wouldn't know how to deal with them just as any side standing boxer.

however, it does seem that guys who use a more square boxing stance tend to make an easier transition into mt.

Style: Savate (LBF/SD/LC) - BJJ
Most important advice is already given:
- sweep the leg
- never try to outbox a boxer: it hurts (speaking from experience)
One of the things that I learned from Savate and most other Kickboxing styles don't have (or don't practise) is kicking and boxing when backing-away. (no "created by the French jokes" please).
It works wonderwell in confusing your opponent, but it's more difficult than it looks.
Instead of backing-away and than moving-in for the kicking or boxing, the backing-away and then kicking/boxing have to be timed as one movement, it takes some training to get the timing right and than some practise to throw combo's while backing-out.
But once you get it, it's fun to give your opponent a false sense of victory by letting him gain territorium while he's eating a first set of hard roundhouse kicks, than see his expression change when he comes to the conclusion that he has been set-up and back-away while you come in with hard kicks.
Afterwards he will always hesitated when sparring with you, since gaining territorium =/= winning.

I nearly got knocked out by an ammy boxer (12-1) last year when i tried to "just kick his leg". It turns out a good hook can counter a good leg kick :psyduck:. If the boxer has done just a few months cross training you'll need more than leg kicks.
Try conversation first, if it doesn't work at least people will remember you asking to go a bit lighter should it escalate.

Unless the dude is way taller than you a hook really shouldn't be the same range as a leg kick.
