On July 15th 1969, Boris killed [[Roman the Fabulist]] whilst searching for the ArcNet Shield at Coney Island, according to the MiB Archives. Later, at Cape Canaveral where Agent K placed the ArcNet Shield on the Apollo 11 rocket, Boris attempted to stop K from doing so, only to have his arm blown off and sent to prison. K regretted not killing him for many years following the incident. The establishment of this shield around Earth prevented Boris' race of the Boglodites from entering, primordially known as parasites that strip a planet of its resources, thereby leading to their extinction. This only fortified Boris's grudge against Agent K.

However, the young K refuses to do so, and instead shoots the younger Boris to his death. With Boris finally dead, the parasitic Boglodites starve themselves to extinction over the next 40 years, as they can't thrive without feeding off resources from a planet.

2012

After more than 40 years of imprisonment at the Lunar Max Penitentiary, Boris escapes from the facility with the aid of Lilly, who has brought the Weasel over to free Boris. With the deed done, Boris resolves to kill K. After a close encounter with both K and J at the roof of a Chinese restaurant, Boris resolves to kill K instead by travelling back in time -time jumping- to the year 1969 to stop K from forcing his race into extinction and destroying/Shooting off his arm.

Altered 1969

In the altered timeline, the elder Boris and the Weasel travel back to this year with the aim of working together with their past selves to kill K. The Younger Boris manages to track down Griffin, the rightful possessor of the ArcNet Shield. In a brief encounter with the young K and J, they manage to rescue Griffin and Boris escapes. However, both the young K and J need to install the ArcNet in the Apollo 11 at Cape Canaveral (with the help of an Army Colonel named James Darrell Edwards II, who happens to be J's father) before it blasts off into space. The two Borises then follow the agents to Cape Canaveral, where the elder Boris fights J while the younger Boris tries to stop the younger K from installing the ArcNet into the rocket. Just as the elder Boris attempts to kill the young K, he is distracted by J, who is then pelted with prickers before pushing himself and the elder Boris off the launch tower. Eventually, J time-travels himself back to where he faces off the elder Boris, but only this time he dodges the prickers before punching off the elder Boris off the tower. Around the same time, the younger Boris' left arm is still destroyed by K when he uses one of the fuelling hoses containing liquid nitrogen to freeze his arm and it shatters. Following the successful installment of the ArcNet, the agents escape from the tower as the rocket starts to fly off into space, and the elder Boris is incinerated by the blast fumes from the shuttle. As the younger K reunites with Colonel Edwards, the younger Boris arrives, having escaped the tower, and launches a pricker on K, only for the Colonel to receive it himself, an act witnessed by a shocked J. Following the Colonel's death, the young K holds the younger Boris at gunpoint, and Boris, revealing his true form, attempts to goad K into arresting him, so that he can start the cycle again. However, the young K refuses to do so, and instead shoots the younger Boris to his death. With Boris finally dead, the parasitic Boglodites starve themselves to extinction over the next 40 years, as they can't thrive without feeding off resources from a planet.
