Do you watch a lot of boxing matches? At least half the time one of the boxers has to close distance. They do it very well.

Also consider that a boxer will almost always seek to close on you to strike, whereas an aikidoka will keep that distance. A boxer may not be used to attacking an opponent who does not seek to close with him.
