You have to make him/her miss and counter strike (atemei). This over time will draw the boxer outside of their normal boxing mode. This is not easy. Practice, practice, and more practice.
Of course there is also the application of atemi waza with Sen and sen no sen timing. Letting your atemi waza land before his by pre-empting the strike. As said, it takes practice.
