Obvious jobbing is always a bad thing. It breaks suspension of disbelief. That, however, is not to say that the overdog should always beat the underdog. There is a plausible way to make most underdogs beat most overdogs. It's when it's really obvious that the overdog is being written magically much weaker and/or dumber than normal that jobbing is a bad thing. Technically, every fight is a jobbing, since these characters don't exist.
