Hong Kong Eastern announced last September 12 the re-signing of American center Michael Holyfield for the upcoming ABL season.
“Michael Holyfield is BACK!” Hong Kong Eastern stated on their Instagram post. “We look forward to having Holyfield swat more shots and throwdown thunderous dunk on opponents this coming season.”
Holyfield was a late addition for Eastern last season with the 6’11” big man only playing his first game on February 13, 2019 against San Miguel Alab Pilipinas. He immediately impressed opponents and fans alike as he recorded 19 points and a whopping 20 rebounds during his ABL debut.
In a span of 10 games, including the playoffs, Holyfield averaged 15.5 points, 16.4 rebounds, and 2.3 blocks while shooting 60% from the field.
It would be interesting to see if Holyfield can maintain his impressive production, and help lead Eastern to their second ABL title this season.
