Joseph Parker is back in NZ from his training base in Las Vegas all ready for his bout in Christchurch against Solomon Haumono at Horncastle arena on Thursday 21 July. 

He wasted no time in getting his short back and sides touched up at the Groom Room, with barber to the sports stars Vea Fonua, who does the meanest fades in town.

The Groom Room is just a couple of doors down from Parker's promoter's office Duco on High St. The barber shop, which also provides wet shaves and beard trims, is part of Barkers Clothing store, which provides suits to the All Blacks.

Talking of the All Blacks, could the Groom Room soon be labelled official barber to the All Blacks?

Fonua has applied his magical clippers to numerous sports stars, including All Blacks Sam Cane and Malekai Fekitioa. Malekai is a regular who always visits the High St space when he is in town.
