The WBA and their joke belts. Answer me this...
Wlad wins the WBA champions title by beating Haye. The WBA respond by 'elevating' him to Super Champion (because he's unified), they then let Povetkin fight for a 'regular' belt.
So what happens if Wlad beats Povetkin? Will he become Super Regular Champion? or Super, Super Champion? Or back to regular champion?
Same with Khan and Maidana. Maidana loses to the champ (khan) then somehow becomes regular champ when Khan unifies. So if Khan beats him again, will he be a Super, Super Champion? Or does he get some new bs title like Ultra Champion?

WBA SUPER CHAMPIONSHIPS
The SUPER WORLD CHAMPION CATEGORY OR UNDISPUTED WORLD CHAMPION was created for those World Champions who hold the title of two or more organizations recognized by the WBA, like the World Boxing Council (WBC), the International Boxing Federation (IBF) and the World Boxing Organization (WBO).
The creation of the category of SUPER WORLD CHAMPIONS or UNDISPUTED WORLD CHAMPIONS was born from a suggestion sent to us by Lennox Lewis, World Boxing Association former Heavyweight Champion, which we have considered convenient in order to give the Unified Champions a more flexible time to defend their titles as well as the challengers the chance to fight for the title.
We are still working to set the regulation that shall rule the SUPER WORLD CHAMPIONS, and we have considered it convenient to establish the following:
1. The SUPER CHAMPIONS will be obliged to make the mandatory defense of their titles in a period no longer than 18 months against the boxer recognized as the World Boxing Association Champion of the corresponding division.
2. In the intermediate period between the mandatory defenses, the UNDISPUTED SUPER CHAMPION will be able to defend his title against any recognized opponent chosen from the official ratings list of the WBA or from the organizations it recognizes and with the approval of those organizations.
3. The WBA, WBC, IBF and WBO will coordinate whenever necessary their respective ratings, to minimize any incompatibility in them for the Unified Titles, thus easing the optional fights of the UNIFIED SUPER CHAMPIONS.
4. In those cases of controversies that make difficult the selection of the mandatory contender to fight with the SUPER CHAMPION, the organizations will be able to order mandatory fights (Box-off suggested by Lennox Lewis) to determine the mandatory contender ***8211;previously agreed-. In those cases when they do not reach an agreement to make the mandatory fight as it is stated in point ***8216;a***8217; and ***8216;b***8217; previously stated in this provisional regulation, the Purse Bid Procedure will be ordered.

I don't think that we will ever see any unification of WBA belts...they have their system set up the way it is to collect more money

If Wlad would beat Povetkin he would still be the super champion and Povetkin would lose his regular belt, and could win the vacant title again without Klitschko?

This super champ stuff is just a nice excuse for the WBA, to hand out a vacant regular belt to whomever they see fit, or to set up a fight between anyone they see fit. Nothing but a bunch of crooks. And to see Lennox Lewis there is just worse.

So can somebody explain to me how Andre Ward was awarded 'super champion' status when he beat Kessler when Kessler himself was 'regular champion' or whatever these clowns call it?
