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.

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
