The One Directioner has admitted that he still loves boxing and is hoping to pursue it professionally one day.

While we're not so sure we want to see Zayn do anything to wreck that perfect face, we’re glad he’s not letting go of his dreams.

Zayn told the Daily Star "I did boxing 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."

There has been a lot of post-1D career discussion with the band of late. Over the weekend it was reported that Harry Styles is in the studio recording solo tracks but a spokesperson told the Daily Mail "Harry is not recording solo material. All of the band are working on tracks for their third album. Harry is putting together some ideas for the record. The boys sometimes work up ideas separately as well as working together, as they did last year."
