Eubank Jr looked disappointed as his win was confirmed, admitting he wanted to put on more show for Newcastle fans.

After the fight, he made a hilarious reference to when he signed onto a fan’s microwave earlier this week.

He said: “I love Newcastle, it’s always a pleasure to come here. If any of you have a microwave you want me to sign it, I’ll be outside with my pen ready!

What’s next for Eubank Jr? He described his intentions to fight the big names with a bout with the vaunted Liam Williams.

He also couldn’t help but get a pop from longtime rival Billy Joe Saunders.

About who he wants to fight next, Eubank Jr added, “Anyone with a world title, whatever the fans want to see me fight…

“One guy who keeps coming back is Liam Williams, everyone seems to want this fight for me so that’s an option.

“You got that Saunders rat running around he wants to fight me for five million [£5million].

“The options are endless. All I know, starting in December, the big names, it’s gonna be a hell of a 12 months.

The Newcastle crowd was also treated to house favorite Savannah Marshall who took the win over Lolita Muzeya.

Marshall came running the blocks to win by technical knockout in the second round – his seventh consecutive knockout.

It has since been revealed that Marshall will fight Claressa Shields on December 11 and the American has warned that she will offer a lot more than what Muzeya has done.

A provocative Marshall replied, “Claressa Shields couldn’t last two rounds with me!”

There was also success for Hughie Fury, who emerged victorious as his opponent retired injured in the fifth round.

Fury, cousin of WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury, won after Christian Hammer retired with a bicep injury.

It’s another step towards a desired world title for Fury, who told talkSPORT earlier this week that he would win a world champion.

The heavyweight said: “All I know is I’m going to be the world champion, I’m not going to stop until I’m there.

“I have a good team behind me… I have the Sky Sports platform, which I believe is the biggest platform in boxing. Having the right team will give me the right fights and get me to the top.

“You’re only two fights away and you’re back on top.”
