A MICROWAVE signed by Chris Eubank Jr is up for sale on eBay with bidding already over £6,000.
And the kind-hearted boxer has promised to match whatever it goes for and donate the money to a charity of the owner’s choice.
After attending a press conference last Thursday at St James’ Park for his fight against Wanik Awdijan, he took a stroll through the town.
But after stopping for a number of selfies and the odd autograph, one plucky lad ran up to him carrying the kitchen appliance and bizarrely requested the signature.
The Geordie man, in a black jacket and black cap, provided the Sharpie pen ready and deadpan said: “It’s the only thing I’ve got.”
Eubank Jr could not believe his eyes and initially said: “Nah, not the microwave!”
But then the Sussex scrapper handed over his bag, stayed cool as a cucumber and put pen to plastic.
The microwave has attracted a fair amount of interest since it hit the auction website.

The owner added: “Signed microwave by Chris Eubank Jr – signed in Newcastle.
“This is the most famous microwave in the UK.”
The middleweight boxer shared the listing on Twitter, writing: “Been sent a link to an eBay auction thats selling the microwave I signed in Newcastle.
“No idea how much it’ll go for but to make this a more meaningful situation whatever the winning bid is I’ll match it & give the money to a charity of the winners choice.”
Eubank Jr battered Awdijan into submission at the weekend – the German-Armenian pulling the plug on their fight after just five one-sided rounds, claiming broken ribs.
