Footage shared online shows Next Gen happily standing next to people in Newcastle and posing for photos.
But then a bloke came from out of nowhere carrying his white home appliance in the hope the two-time Super Middleweight World Champion would be able to write his signature on it.
Chris happily obliged and dished out his John Hancock across the whole top of the microwave as the man said: "It's the only thing I've got."
Another bloke then came up and asked for Eubank Jr to sign his hand, which he also did.
Only in Newcastle will you find such dedication & resourcefulness. The balls this kid must have to walk around the town center on a Thursday night ALONE with only a microwave to watch his back, deserves a medal for bravery. pic.twitter.com/zYmdS8yuQU- Chris Eubank Jr (@ChrisEubankJr) October 14, 2021

He bumped into him and all he had on him was that microwave and you're not gonna not get Chris Eubank's autograph, right?

Great reaction from Chris Eubank Jr spending time acknowledging the fans. Gutted I didn't have a look at St James myself today when I was working in the city center earlier. A great positive is that the football ground is slap bang in the middle of the city center

People said it reminded them of the scene from Step Brothers when Will Ferrell's character brags about having Randy Jackson's autograph on a samurai sword.
Loads of fans also praised Chris Eubank Jr for being an absolute legend with all those fans.
He could have easily fobbed them off, however him posing for photos and signing people's hans cements him as a standup bloke.
But an incident involving his dad might make him wary around strangers.
Chris' dad was recently caught up in a brazen robbery that saw his designer £400 Louis Vuitton bag stolen.
The former boxer was visiting a Barclays branch in Edgware Road, west London, when a man ran from behind and tugged the designer bag from under his arm earlier this week.
The ex-WBO middleweight and super-middleweight champion said he was too taken aback by 'the country's most brazen crook' to give chase.
Speaking to the Evening Standard, he said: "I couldn't believe it. I was stunned. He couldn't have known who I was because he wouldn't have tried it. He was just looking at the prize.
"It was over in seconds and he was down the road like a sprinter with a baton.
"I didn't even think of chasing him at first such was the shock.
"I only saw the back of his head so I didn't see his complexion. He was rather well-dressed with smart jeans."
Eubank rushed to the bank to report what happened and call the police, before heading in the direction the thief took flight.
