Cooper fought cannily for the first three rounds, before going hard at the start of the fourth to force a TKO 34 seconds into the final round.

The Rugby star was well supported by Reds’ teammates and coach Richard Graham, who were on hand to watch his second fight.

Cooper has worked hard in the Reds’ pre-season to ensure he is ready for the 2014 Super Rugby season, while preparing for the fight in his spare time.

His focus will now shift to the Reds’ first pre-season match against the Chiefs in Toowoomba on Saturday 8 February, which will be followed by the Rebels at Ballymore on Friday 14 February.
