Australia has named a team of nine athletes set to compete at the International Boxing Association (IBA) Women's Boxing World Championships in India's capital New Delhi, despite being a member of the Common Cause Alliance. 

Caitlin Parker is one of the most prominent names in the squad, having earned middleweight silver at the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games and bronze at Birmingham 2022.

Kaye Scott won welterweight bronze at Gold Coast 2018, and has previously taken light heavyweight silver at the World Championships in 2016.

Birmingham 2022 bronze medallist at featherweight Tina Rahimi is also in the Australian team.

Monique Suraci, Tiana Echegaray, Danielle Scanlon, Marissa Williamson, Emma-Sue Greentree and Jessica Bagley complete the squad.

Satinder Kaur is set to serve as team manager for the World Championships, with Santiago Nieva as head coach.

Sam Brizzi and Jeremy Udovich have been named as assistant coaches, and Josh McCabe as physiotherapist.

Several members of the Alliance, including the United States, Great Britain, Ireland and The Netherlands, have committed to a boycott of IBA events because of ongoing concerns over its governance under Russian official Umar Kremlev as President and the decision to allow Russian and Belarusian athletes to compete as neutrals.

The Philippines and France, also members of the Alliance, have not yet announced whether or they plan to attend the event in New Delhi. 

Boxing Australia backed Dutch official Boris van der Vorst in his efforts to become IBA President last year.

Van der Vorst was wrongly prevented from challenging Kremlev in Istanbul in May, but delegates voted against staging a re-run of the Presidential election in Yerevan in September.

Since then, relations between the IBA and International Olympic Committee have deteriorated, and boxing remains off the initial programme for the Los Angeles 2028 Olympics.

The IBA has pledged to provide financial assistance for athletes from countries boycotting the World Championships to enable them to participate and ensure boxers are not victims of "the political games of a few National Federations", while Kremlev has described officials who backed a boycott as "worse than hyenas and jackals".

Its Boxing Independent Integrity Unit has opened disciplinary proceedings against five officials for their role in the boycott movement.

A total prize fund of $2.4 million (£2.0 million/€2.3 million) is on offer at the Women's World Championships, scheduled for March 15 to 26.
