We have always tried to have them meet outside in the yard (if the weather is okay).  Even with the rescue we had of a different breed.  Our boxers are not aggressive but they do get very curious and excited with a new dog/puppy.  They usually DROOL ALOT and try to paw or nose the new dog.   Usually the new dog will get into the submissive position and let them sniff and things are okay.  It takes sometimes a few weeks or more for them to get comfortable with each other.  Since you are bringing in an older boxer with your younger one the older one may want to be the dominate one.  It will also help if your family keeps calm during the introduction but also make sure you watch for any signs of aggression from either of them.  Like others said too watch out for the feeding for awhile to see how they do.  I would find out as much as possible from the family you are getting the dog from how it acts with the other dogs in the family, food/toy aggressions, etc. That also should help.
