Because this comes up a lot: In general, we have assault (a credible threat to or attempt to cause harm through unwanted contact) and battery (actually causing harm through unwanted contact). However, the actual statutes vary in definition and name for every country, state, province, prefect, county, and city that addresses them. In some places assault is a blanket term and covers both. In some places verbal battery is a thing. So you're probably both right, but only locally.
Your boyfriend certainly felt the spark in your relationship.
