One Direction 2013: Zayn Malik is training to become a professional boxer in case 1D split up!
It’s been reported today that One Direction singer Zayn Malik is going to come out fighting should the X Factor boy band ever split up…
And that’s because he’s apparently training to become a professional boxer, which, as mentioned, he hopes will become his full-time career if ever the band do part ways.
But the news may concern fans of 1D, coming as it does just a day or so after – as we reported – it was claimed that his band mate Harry Styles is currently working on a solo album, also in case the band – which also features singers Louis Tomlinson, Niall Horan and Liam Payne – ever split.
However, speaking to the Daily Star, Zayn said of his fighting ambitions, “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.”
The paper adds, “And when big-hitter Zayn is topless in the ring, he’s going to have plenty of body art to show off.”
Of his tattoos, Zayn – who is of course dating Little Mix singer Perrie Edwards – said, “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!”
Bless. Here’s a reminder of Zayn on X Factor…
