Quade Cooper to fight in curtain raiser
Wallabies fly-half Quade Cooper has been invited to fight in a curtain raiser.
CAPE TOWN - Boxing promoters are days away from announcing that Wallabies fly-half Quade Cooper will fight on the undercard for the Sonny Bill Williams/Francois Botha fight in February.
Boxing promoter Thinus Strydom said Cooper will make the announcement at a media briefing on Monday.
He said Cooper has been training in the ring with Sonny Bill Williams for over two years and has what it takes to be a good boxer.
Strydom said Cooper is a big draw card for the main bout.
"I'm pretty sure the rugby playing nations would like to tune in and watch that fight. I know it will be completely sold out."
