I have cut them right back, the centre of the existing stems are still green.   Do you think they will recover , like Privet does, after being cut right back??????

It depends on how severely you cut them back and how old they are. Boxwoods don't take well to drastic pruning. However, only time will tell. Keep the watered regularly to help them recover. Here is more info:
