2 Tibetan Mastiffs
The Tibetan Mastiff (Do-khyi) is an ancient breed and type of domestic dog (Canis lupus familiaris) originating with nomadic cultures of Central Asia. The Tibetan Mastiff also known as Do-khyi (variously translated as "home guard", "door guard", "dog which may be tied", "dog which may be kept"), reflects its use as a guardian of herds, flocks, tents, villages, monasteries, and palaces, much as the old English ban-dog (also meaning tied dog) was a dog tied outside the home as a guardian. The Tibetan Mastiff is an outstanding sheepdog and is ferocious against wolves or leopards that try to approach its flock. It is also an excellent guard of both entire villages and isolated houses. The Tibetan Mastiff comes to adulthood somewhat later than other breeds.
Height: 25-28 inches (61-71 cm.)
Weight: 140-170 pounds (64-78 kg.) Some European owners claim the dogs can weigh up to 220 pounds (99 kg.), but the vast majority of these dogs have a weigh that fall in the range stated above.

Wild Boar - Sus scrofa
Wild boar, also known as wild pig, (Sus scrofa) is a species of the pig genus Sus, part of the biological family Suidae. The species includes many subspecies. It is the wild ancestor of the domestic pig, an animal with which it freely hybridises. Wild boar are native across much of Northern and Central Europe, the Mediterranean Region (including North Africa's Atlas Mountains) and much of Asia as far south as Indonesia. dult boars measure 90–200 cm (35–79 in) in length, not counting a tail of 15–40 cm (5.9–16 in), and have a shoulder height of 55–110 cm (22–43 in). As a whole, their average weight is 50–90 kg (110–200 pounds), though boars show a great deal of weight variation within their geographical ranges.[9] In central Italy, their weight usually ranges from 80 to 100 kg (180 to 220 lb) while boars shot in Tuscany have been recorded to weigh up to 150 kg (331 lb). An unusually large French specimen shot in Negremont forest in Ardenne in 1999 weighed 227 kg (550 lb). Carpathian boars have been recorded to reach weights of 200 kg (441 lb). Romanian and Russian boars can reach weights of 300 kg (661 lb), while unconfirmed giants reported in early Russian hunting journals have reportedly weighed up to 320 kg (710 lb).

The dogs will wear the boar out and kill it eventually.

The key factors for dogs outlasting the boar is endurance, agility and strength. The only thing the mastiffs have is the strength. They will lose puff and catch a tusk. The boar wins.

Are there really any cases of boars being KILLED (not by a hunter!) by canids?

Is the closest thing peccaries by bush dogs, if even that happens?

Boar should win this. You need a more agile dog to be able to jump in and out and tire the boar.

The largest boar I have heard of being killed by a lone hunting dog was 60kg. The dog was a bull arab bull mastiff mix. 2 bull Arabs would be able to kill a boar through accumulative damage though, they can go all day and one the boar loses its strength then they can just work their hold until it bleeds out.

wolves have killed wild boar, which imo is closer than bushdog encounters.

Yes, armor is rarely used these days.

I read a wolf pictorial book and it showed a wolf with a wild boar kill. Honestly I doubt I will ever find it but I shall look for it again.

Wild boar is part of the wolf's diet
