10 Puzzle Pieces
Torchwood always tries to tell everyone Match Flower is his descendant, but not only can Match Flower light peas, he's also a warrior that has a "let the fists do the talking" attitude, being obviously much stronger than Torchwood, who can only make a scary face to scare enemies.
Match Flower Boxer (火柴花拳手; pinyin: huǒchái huā quánshǒu) is a plant in the Chinese version of Plants vs. Zombies 2 introduced in the 1.8.2 update. It attacks zombies by punching them one tile in front of it. After dealing a certain amount of damage (c.a. four attack cycles), it will set its petals on fire and start to do more damage. It can also be set on fire by other plants. When it is on fire, it can light up peas that pass through it, just like Torchwood. However, the fire is only available for a while.
To get this plant, the player must spend fire crystals to spin the slot for Puzzle Pieces or spin the slot in an amount of times.
One of Match Flower Boxer's Puzzle Pieces can be traded in, along with ten red rocks, in order to obtain one of Flame Flower Queen's Puzzle Pieces.
Match Flower Boxer's designs is based on the banksia cuneata, also known as the Matchstick Banksia or Quairading Banksia. Its name is a mix of "match box," a box used to hold matches, "flower box," a potting device to hold flowers, and "boxer," an athlete from the sport of boxing.
Its costume, a pair of red boxing gloves, is a reference to how it attacks zombies, and another reference to the boxing motif with the plant.

- It is the sixth flower to use its "arms" to fight zombies. The others are Sunflower Queen, Royal Hypno-Flower, Morning Glory, Briar Rose, and Poppin' Poppies.
- It reuses Bonk Choy's punching sound effects.
- It is the only plant introduced in the 1.8.2 update that is not a Legendary plant. Instead, it is a Super-Rare plant.
- It and Bonk Choy are the only plants in the Chinese version of Plants vs. Zombies 2 that can punch zombies.

- The punches it does are considered fire damage, which will melt slowed zombies.
- It is the third Chinese-exclusive thawing plant. The first is Pitaya and the second is Firebloom Queen.
- It is the second plant that can light peas on fire. The first is Torchwood.
- If one or more Match Flower Boxers are in front of a Flame Flower Queen and the Flame Flower Queen sets the tiles in front of it alight, it will set fire to the Match Flower Boxers' petals.
- A similar thing happens when a Fire Peashooter shoots a fire pea in a lane with one or more Match Flower Boxers.
- Somehow, even when it's not on fire yet, it still warms nearby plants.
- Its range is slightly longer than Bonk Choy's, and a bit more longer than Torch Kongfu Zombie's, as seen in the gallery.
- It, Jack O' Lantern, Rose Swordsman, Pretty Little Plum, Flame Mushroom, and Angel Starfruit are the only plants with a sun cost of 225.
