Controversial Wallabies' playmaker Quade Cooper is putting his rugby union career on hold to make his boxing debut.

Cooper has confirmed he is on the undercard of Sonny Bill Williams' fight at the Brisbane Entertainment Centre on February 8.

The Reds' five-eighth will fight in the cruiserweight division against a yet-to-be determined opponent.

Cooper said while rugby union was "the game I love'', his future in that sport remained up in the air after he rejected an "unacceptable'' offer from the Australian Rugby Union.
