For the love of boxers!

Can someone PLEASE suggest something I can do to lessen Scruffy's hate-affair with boxers?
His buddies, the park bullies, taught him that boxers are evil and they must all die. Even dogs such as staffies that have a similar face must die....sigh...
he's fine with all other dogs.
Our park is big, with few trees, so I can usually see the boxers coming. But if they sneak up from behind and scruffy goes for them, I feel like I've got the worst dog on the planet.
He's never bitten one, I don't think he will, but I need to stop this boxer-aggression.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Has he met any nice female Boxers?

Haa haaaa haa
he doesn't stop to sniff! One look at the face, and he's in the zone.

This is actually something that I am also experiencing with my GSD. He does not like rotties at all no matter if the dog is dominent or not. I am curious to know why and also learn on how to curb this behaviour.

Great question btw.

We have the same problem with our Alaskan Mal/GSD x, Thorin. It's Boxers. We used to take him to the dog park, there were 2 Boxers that would always attack him, so we quit taking him. But now, he sees a Boxer and goes nuts. He hates them :(
