New medal events have been added to powerlifting, track cycling, and boxing. 

The women’s boxing has seen three new divisions included; 48 kg, 57 kg and +75 kg alongside the 51kg, 60kg and 69kg divisions, which brings it to a total of six medal events.

The most a Commonwealth or Olympic Games has seen.

Australian boxers Skye Nicolson and Kaye Scott are just two of the five female boxers in the team.

While it is Nicolson's first Commonwealth Games, Scott was the captain of the boxing team at Glasgow 2014.  

Glasgow was the first time women’s boxing made an appearance at the Commonwealth Games. 

"I think there's been a lot of positive change in terms of bringing equality into the sport," Nicolson said.

"We've heard there will be 50/50 for the (Los Angeles) 2024 Olympics, the same amount of weight divisions for men and women, which is really exciting," she said.

It has been a long time coming for boxing with the most recent Olympic Games only seeing three divisions with 36 athletes compared to the men's event which had 10 divisions for 250 athletes.

While it isn't perfect it is a step in the right direction for the sport.

"It's a great advancement for female sport, for boxing in particular," Scott said.

It allows women to compete in their own weight division, without jeopardising their health.

"Previously I did fight in the 81kg division at only 77kg, so I'm much happier to fight in my own weight (69kg), it's much more to my advantage," she said.

Women's boxing at the Commonwealth Games will begin on April 6.
