Champion boxer Lupesoliai Joseph Parker is back home.

After recently making Samoa proud through a knock out fight against Solomon Haumono in Christchurch New Zealand, the country welcomed the boxer with all smiles.

Digicel L.T.E. put up a tent yesterday to give Team Parker fans a chance to meet the star.

People of all ages lined up for a chance to get autographed pictures, their shirts signed, L.T.E shirts and caps and of course not forgetting the selfies.

Messages from fans were relayed over the speakers to encourage Parker and to also show that Samoa is behind him all the way.

“You are the best Joseph, you can beat them all,” said one fan. “Go Joseph Parker, keep making Samoa proud.”

Parker is in the country for a holiday.
