Chris Eubank Jr asked to sign MICROWAVE by Geordie fan ahead of his fight in Newcastle this weekend


Chris Eubank Jr remarkably signed a fan’s microwave on Thursday night in Newcastle.

The 32-year-old middleweight is set to fight Wanik Awdijan as part of a BOXXER show in Newcastle, live on talkSPORT on Saturday night.

Ahead of the event, he attended a press conference at St James’ Park on Thursday.

As he walked around the city later in the evening, he was mobbed by fans.

Most asked for photos, with the occasional signature request.

However, one Geordie took things to a bizarre new level as he hauled his microwave down the street towards Eubank Jr and asked him to sign it.

The understandably baffled boxer did not quite know how to react at first.

Eventually though, he accepted the request and marked the kitchen appliance with his signature.

Whatever opponent Wanik Awdijan brings on Saturday night, he is unlikely to surprise Eubank Jr more than he already has been this week.
