I've been around a lot of Boxers of all different lines, both well bred and not and raised in all different ways. IME your experience is typical of the breed. They are extremely rough and physical dogs, like to body slam for fun and their play style is often very offensive to other dogs. And young Boxers tend to be really wild and active. They do settle down into only sometimes really wild and active as they get older. Boxers are not a breed I'd suggest if "must get along with other dogs" is super important. They are definitely prone to DA and SSA, some of them seem to really enjoy getting into a good scuffle.
