Default Effectiveness of Boxing

I see a lot of talk about Muay Thai, BJJ and others for self protection but what about good old fashioned western Boxing? I think its a solid form of fighting and its geared toward the White mans strengths, although I do think it should be paired with a bit of grappling and wrestling knowledge as well(as both of those were completely legal in the old days of boxing) but want to hear others opinions and experiences on this. I myself have never liked the idea of kicking in street fights because you compromise your base and open yourself up for takedowns or slipping if your not a top notch kicker. And I've never liked taking a fight to the ground in case people jump in you are basically fucked royally. Opinions and criticism welcomed I'm here to exchange ideas not knock other martial arts
