Kiwi heavyweight boxer Joseph Parker has had yet another brush with stardom.

On Tuesday (NZ time), Parker posed for pictures with iconic former WWE wrestler turned actor Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson during a visit to the set of Johnson's latest movie.

The former WBO world champion called it a privilege to meet Johnson, who is also of Samoan heritage, who was in the thick of filming for Hobbs & Shaw, a spin-off from the famous Fast and Furious franchise that's due for release in August.

Last week, Parker spent time with former WWE superstar Roman Reigns and Kiwi actor Cliff Curtis, while on holiday in the Pacific.

The 27-year-old is currently on the hunt for his next opponent, after dispatching American Alexander 'The Great' Flores in Christchurch in December.
