That would depend on the terrain. A wolf would do better, probably, in a large, flat area with no undergrowth for the lynx to hide. But lynxes are more agile and would probably win anywhere else. But they have completely different fighting styles. A wolf will tackle huge prey with its jaws and clamp down, but a lynx will sneak up on medium-small prey, grab it, and scratch it over and over again until the poor thing is cornered, whereupon the lynx kills it. A wolf is used to bigger game than a lynx.

But all in all, I think the lynx would win, simply for this reason: A wolf is not meant to fight alone. It needs a pack for emotional and hunting support. It's used to lynching its prey. A lynx is self-reliant and would be better in a one-on-one conflict.

What would win in a fight a lynx or a wolf?

I think a wolf would win because underneath all of that fur is muscle would be a close fight but the wolf has more muscle and speed thats reason this fight is so close is because the lynx has good all around fighting technique such as strategies,agility,and stealth.But both animals have strong bite force which balances it out to make it a close fight.Wolves are braver than lynx so that is what pulls them ahead in the fight.Which that makes wolves most likely to win in a fight.
