Boxing is pretty great.
That said, it depends more on the quality of instruction than the specific art. Go to each, watch a lesson, talk to the instructor. See how much sparring (/randori/kumite/kyorugi/matsogi) they do. Be wary of any schools that want you to commit to a lengthy period of teaching in advance.
