Broner is much more hyped than those guys were. None of them were placed on the pound for pound list; Jacobs wasn't even a beltholder--his hype was more similar to Panchito Bojado's than Broner's.

lucian bute is one of the best SMWs in the world, he lost to the second best SMW who also is one of the best 10 fighters p4p. no shame in that at all, he has a decent resume too. he got a bit overhyped, ppl got ahead of themselves as usual but hes no hypejob. hes world class. danny jacobs lost to a good fighter too, again he was overhyped but not a complete hypejob. or atleast its too soon to say.
bradley? are you serious? he only lost once and it was too fcking pacquiao, all in all hes got a very good resume and is one of the 10 or 15 best fighters in the world p4p. not only that but he got there the hard way fighting his way to the top against one high risk low reward oponent after the next. in what universe is he a hypejob?
i could keep going but i will just answer you misguided querstion instead. no broner isnt a hypejob, in fact he already proved that. you never know just how far a fighter will go, some ppl think he will be an atg. that might not be the case but that doesnt make him a hypejob, there are always ppl with lofty expectations right off the bat.
a real hypejob is plain garbage, like lacy or helenius. broner clearly knows how to fight, hes clearly world class. that means he isnt a hypejob regardless if he lives up to the highest expectations or not.
