Bizarre moment Chris Eubank Jr signs a young fan's microwave - his reaction says it all

A truly bizarre video of Chris Eubank Jr signing a boxing fan's microwave ahead of his fight with Wanik Awdijan on Saturday night in Newcastle has gone viral. 

In the clip, Eubank Jr can be seen posing for photos with fans outside of a hotel in Tyneside, before being approached by a fan carrying a microwave.   

The British boxer was briefly taken aback before quickly recovering his composure and agreeing to sign the kitchen appliance much to the delight of those standing nearby.   

Grinning from ear to ear, the young man wearing a black cap and puffer jacket could hardly believe his luck. 

He also received plenty of congratulatory pats on the back from passers-by as he carried it back down the street. 

Eubank Jr then carries on taking pictures, still smiling as fans mill around in disbelief.  

His management team Wasserman Boxing couldn't resist sharing the hilarious interaction on social media. 

Since the video was posted on Thursday night, it has received over 5,000 likes on Twitter.
