Who would win - IB vs PE vs HF

Who would win in a fight - the average IB vs the average PE vs the average HF? To control for the effects of age (an analyst would whoop an MD's ass), the fight takes place over the same title/ level: average IB analyst vs average PE analyst vs average HF analyst. Average IB MD vs average PE MD vs average HF manager. Who would win?

(As an afterthought, who would win in a lifting contest?)

user121, what's your opinion? Comment below:

If you are seriously asking this question, I think it would be fairly obvious to anyone who actually knows people who are analysts in those 3 jobs, that the ones who go into IB (seemingly the least academically selective of the 3) are probably the ones who spent most time out of all 3 at the gym, in sports or in actual, physical fights…

At the senior level, it's probably the same, but in terms of like a fight for money (which is more likely among adults probably in terms of suing each other in courts or whatever) it's probably the average HF manager just based on the amount of lawsuits seen in the news or whatever, putting aside the extraordinarily wealthy, multi-billionaire PE heads. Probably the wealthiest people are most likely to sue/fight someone and win given their personalities/resources available to spend on a fight
