The boxer, who has grossed nearly a billion dollars in an unbeaten 20-year career, winning world titles in five weight divisions, added: “When I do go to the Octagon I look forward to going to 145 (pounds).” ” ” 1 The Ivorian in action for Nice this season Everton have pulled out of a deal to sign Jean-Michael Seri and will instead look to strengthen other areas of their squad.1xb et

But it would appear the Ivorian is not the man Sam Allardyce wants to replace Barkley at Goodison Park, as the January window hots up. ”
