Default Is Devon Alexander still the IBF champion?

I've read that he might get stripped of the WBC title, but after taking a look at the IBF rankings I was pretty surprised to see that they don't list Alexander as their champion, instead they have the title vacant. What's going on here? The ranking is from the 23rd of March 2010.

He became super champ when he unified. Regular champ is vacant.

I would guess that when the website was updated, the IBF hadn't received their sanctioning fee from Alexander yet.

Good grief. They're going to have to come up with a new name besides paper champs because at this rate, there's gonna be more champs than paper.

The IBF doesnt have Super Champs.

Only the WBO and WBA have Super Champs

Wlad is an unified champ and he doesn't have anything like the IBF superp title but the regular one.

Alexander is still the IBF champ.
It's just that the IBF's rankings are as ever full of errors.
They've listed Valuev as the WBA heavyweight champ.
They've listed Kotelnik as the WBA lww champ.
They've listed Brian Magee & Martin Lindsay, two Irish fighters, as 'English' & 'Israeli' respectively.
Worst of all they have listed Danny Green as their seventh ranked cruiserweight. Ridiculous.

With all the money they got, they should really be able to find someone to keep their standings up to date...
