I think each should be judged fight by fight... I try to judge a fighters win on what I thought would happen before the fight.
So for me the Haye win was more impressive than Adamek because I gave Haye more of a chance vs Wlad than Adamek vs Vitali.
Similarly i still rate pac versus De La Hoya as a good win because before the fight I thought it was madness him even taking it. Same with Hopkins Trinidad (trinidad was favourite). Even though after the event people saw that Hoya was drained and trinidad was perhaps too small for Hopkins.
Resume vs talent i think is a judgement call, you need to ask yourself if a fighter who has looked good has faced tough enough opposition to warrant the hype.

Just watch though, if Martinez fights and beats GGG soon before GGG beats a top opponent, GGG will be the next to be called the 'hypejob' - it's todays boxing fans.
