Watch boxing fan beg Chris Eubank Jr to sign his MICROWAVE as middleweight mobbed ahead of Awdijan fight

CHRIS EUBANK JR is really warming to Newcastle – and proved it by signing a MICROWAVE.

The British middleweight, 32, takes on Wanik Awdijan this Saturday night in the city.

Chris Eubank Jr was asked for selfies before one fan requested he signs a microwave
The boxer initially said no but relented and inked the kitchen appliance in Newcastle

And after attending a press conference on Thursday at St James’ Park, he took a stroll through the town in the evening.

But after stopping for a number of selfies and the odd autograph, one plucky lad ran up to him carrying the kitchen appliance – not a George Foreman – 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, perhaps a tad hot under the collar.

Initially, he said: “Nah, not the microwave!”

But then the Sussex scrapper handed over his bag, stayed cool as a cucumber and put pen to – err – plastic.

Baffled onlookers were also in disbelief.

One can be heard shouting: “A microwave? What the hell?”

Another added: “I can’t believe I’m seeing this.”

A different supporter got his hand signed by the boxer and others posed for photos while the chuffed microwave man proudly marched off carrying his one-of-a-kind cooker.

Eubank Jr returns to the ring this weekend after his comeback fight was dramatically cancelled after Anatoli Muratov was withdrawn on medical grounds.

Instead, the Brit will be feeling the heat as he steps into the ring with Awdijan, 26, who has only boxed in Germany and Austria.

Headlining the night is Savannah Marshall, 30, who defends her WBO middleweight title against undefeated challenger Lolita Muzeya, 30.

Also on the bill is heavyweight Hughie Fury, 27, against Christian Hammer, 34, who in 2015 was beaten by his cousin Tyson.

Eubank Jr is now a late addition on the undercard but will get his chance to return ahead of a promised pay-per-view blockbuster in December.
