Jeremy Stephens Dropping To Featherweight After Recent Loss To Yves Edwards

Jeremy Stephens has decided to make a career move following three consecutive defeats.

Stephens sent out a message on Twitter that he has decided to change weight classes.

Stephens (20-9) suffered his first career knockout loss to Yves Edwards recently. Along with the weight change, “Lil Heathen” will also be dealing with a previous assault charge that saw him wind up in jail earlier this year.
