Press Trust of India  |  London 

Boy band 'One Direction' member Zayn Malik wants to become a boxer in the future and has started practising the sport.

The 20-year-old was rumoured to be leaving the band recently but 'One Direction' spokesperson had declined the claims, reported Daily Star.

"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," Malik said.

The singer also talked about his obsession for body art.

"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!.
