ZAYN Malik is aiming to become a boxer when his One Direction days end.
The hunk has secretly resumed his passion for fisticuffs in the hope of being the next Amir Khan (or Cheryl Cole…).
The Bradford lad, 20, has revealed: “I did boxing from when I was 15 to 17. I love it and I’ve started training again now on the side, even though we don’t get much time off for exercise.
“I’m trying to eat healthier so I can bulk up. I’d love to pursue it properly one day.”
And when big-hitter Zayn is topless in the ring, he’s going to have plenty of body art to show off.
The singer has been opening up about his tat plans. He admitted: “All of my tattoos are based on my own art work.
“I want to fill up my entire right arm to my elbow to start off.
“I’ve got loads of ideas.
“I’m more addicted to coming up with ideas for tattoos rather than the tattoo itself!”
