, ‘Well that escalated quickly’ – Eubank Jr reacts after £66k eBay bid on microwave he signed.. which he vowed to match

CHRIS EUBANK Jr is on the verge of handing over more than £66,000 to charity after a microwave he signed in Newcastle went up for sale on eBay.

The middleweight boxer promised to match whatever the kitchen appliance sold for – and this morning it had reached a hefty amount.

Chris Eubank Jr shared the eBay listing of the microwave he signed – it appears to have been sold for more than £66,000

Unsurprisingly, Eubank Jr was shocked at how things had snowballed, writing on Twitter: “Well that escalated quickly.”

The listing is no longer available, presumably because the auction has ended.

After attending a press conference last Thursday at St James’ Park for his fight against Wanik Awdijan, he took a stroll through Newcastle.

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 attracted a huge 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.
