Tiger Johnson Planning a Winning 2024 for Himself!

Come Friday, February 16, top junior welterweight prospect Delante “Tiger” Johnson (11-0, 5 KO’s) will stage his first prizefight of the year. In that duel, the Cleveland, Ohio native will test his might versus Brazilian boxer Paulo Cesar Galdino (13-7-2, 9 KO’s). The two will collide under the hot lights of the iconic Madison Square Garden.

Naturally, Tiger would love to begin the year just as he concluded last year. During 2023, Johnson fought four times and won four times. One came by way of split decision and the other three by unanimous decision. Yet, rather than concern himself with the particulars of how he will prevail, Johnson is only concerning himself with securing the victory, as he explained in a brief Q&A with KO Artist Sports.

“Fight number 12, we are going to keep knocking ’em down! This is a big year for me, so we are going to keep it moving.”


Like Tiger, Galdino also fought in four fistic campaigns during 2023, although his outcomes were far less favorable. The Brazilian would go on to win one, lose one and then collect draws in the remaining two. Heading into his affair against Johnson, there is no doubt that will do so as the B-side.

So, while he has an uphill battle to traverse, if successful, Galdino can drastically alter the trajectory of his career in a wonderful way. First, he will have to get past the talented Top-Rank-signed bruiser if he wants to enjoy that potential chapter in his story. Sadly for the Brazilian boxer though, the smart money is on Johnson. In the end however, we will just have to tune in to see how everything resolves itself.
