Quade Cooper Plans To Continue His Boxing Run

Australia's vice-captaincy won't end Quade Cooper's boxing career, with the mercurial fly-half hoping to have his second bout early next year.

Cooper's foray into professional boxing was a sticking point with the Australian Rugby Union 12 months ago, when he was almost left without a national top-up contract. Now well and truly back in the fold since long-time Queensland Reds coach Ewen McKenzie replaced Robbie Deans in the Wallabies position, Cooper doesn't believe the extra leadership responsibility should change his extra-curricular boxing plans. He intends to repeat this year's pre-season build-up by scheduling a bout before the Super Rugby competition kicks off in mid-February. Last February, Cooper missed the Reds' second and final Super Rugby trial against the Chiefs to undertake his debut in the ring, where he knocked out Barry Dunnett in the first round in Brisbane.

"I love [boxing]," Cooper said. "It's something I've continued to work at throughout the year. It's something that during the week I find is very positive in my life. I'm looking forward to my next bout but the focus for me is this tour and I've got a massive game on Saturday [against England]."

Cooper has some of the best footwork in the world in any sport, but when he boxed he just stood there static in front of his opponent. Another who should stick to rugby I think.
