At the VERY VERY least skills in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu will give you a full range of options for how much lethality you wish to use. You can choke someone out without doing any real damage to their person. Or you can break one of their joints (elbow, knee, shoulder) or you can continue to hold a choke and cause brain damage or death. A boxer who uses his boxing skills in a fight is basically confined to bludgeoning his opponent with his fists. Also, in a street fight without gloves a boxer can easily hurt his hands.
