"The Big If" is the story of how two boxers grew up thousands of miles apart and came together for one apocalyptic night that would have seismic consequences for everyone who knew them. Johnny Owen (the Matchstick Man from Wales) and Lupe Pintor (El Indio from Mexico) met for less than sixty minutes on 19 September 1980. It was Owen's chance to become the world bantamweight champion, but the Matchstick Man was knocked out in the twelfth round. He spent forty-six days in a coma before he died. Quantity Available: 1.
