Here is the Presa Canario:
It has been bred for a long time as a cattle dog and guard dog, and also for it's ability to fight. They aren't really tall, but they can be mean and fierce.
The Presa should be powerful, balanced, and imposing in appearance. It is heavily built, but able to move with great athleticism.
The head is broad, massive, square, and powerful. Proper head and good expression are part of the breed standard, and are manifest in the best breed specimens.Males average between 23.5-25.5 inches at the withers and weigh between 110-130 pounds.
They of course can be bigger than this.
Here is the Gray, or Timber, Wolf
It is adapted and evolved for endurance, especially in travel. It is generally a team-work fighter and maybe not very effective when solitary.
Wolf weight and size can vary greatly worldwide, tending to increase proportionally with latitude as predicted by Bergmann's Rule. In general, height varies from 0.6 to .95meters (26?38 inches) at the shoulder and weight ranges from 20 to 62 kilograms, which together make the gray wolf the largest of all wild canids. Although rarely encountered, extreme specimens of more than 77 kg (170 lb) have been recorded in Alaska and Canada. The heaviest wild wolf on record, killed in Alaska in 1939, was 80 kg (175 lb)

They kill things EVERY DAY.
A bunch of self proclaimed wolf experts here. A wolf is an amazing animal. Show some respect.
Do you even know how long a wolf fight lasts? Less than three minutes and then the other animal is dead.
Anyway. A friend used a presa canario for bear hunting. It went chasing after a wolf and out of sight. When the hunter reached his dog is was missing it's snout and choking to death on it's own blood. There is no fight between a wolf and a dog. The hunter had to shoot his dog. So the wolf basically ripped the dogs face off and left. Get it? It was proably a lot easier than what the wolf was used to. If you want there are a lot of documeented cases of what happens to ANY breed of dog when it faces off with a wild grey wolf.
I have spoken to experts, literally. Also, why do you think on Discovery Channel they had Wolf vs Cougar and not wolf vs large dog? Hmmmm? Because that would be stupid...
There is much to be leaarned but I'm not going to sit and teach it. For one they have bigger teeth and they have a huge gape, bigger than a dogs. This is a beautiful animal. They kill HUGE animals every DAY. They hunt in packs because it's more intelligent to do so. They don't HAVE to. Also, most wolf packs are mom, dad, and the pups...

Oh, and since you seem to think highly of pit bulls skill
This might be of interest to you
Dr. Brady Barr of National Geographic (Dangerous Encounters: Bite Force, 8pm est 8/18/2005) ? Dr. Barr measured bite forces of many different creatures. Domestic dogs were included in the test.
Here are the results of all of the animals tested:
Humans: 120 pounds of bite pressure
Domestic dogs: 320 LBS of pressure on avg. A German Shepherd Dog, American Pit Bull Terrier (APBT), and Rottweiler were tested using a bite sleeve equipped with a specialized computer instrument. The American Pit Bull Terrier had the least amount of pressure of the 3 dogs tested.
The rott had the hardest bite
Wild dogs: 310 lbs wild dogs are smaller than pit bulls... and it only nipped the tester, wolves have HUGE heads.
Lions: 600 lbs
White sharks: 600 lbs
Hyenas: 1000 lbs
Snapping turtles: 1000 lbs
Crocodiles: 2500 lbs
There are documented cases of a single wolf killing a rott. More than one actually.

Also, yeah Wolves fight in packs, but the Alpha wolf is going to fight off every other wolf in the pack for dibs on food/bitches. An Alpha wolf vs a domesticated dog would be interesting...

both weights are cleary stated in the first post. So your comment addressing that is wrong.
How can a domesicated guard dog, fed in a bowl since it got off it's momma's tit, possibly have the killing instinct of a wild animal that only eats if it kills? I understand you merely said the canario has a "strong" killing instinct, but a wolf clearly has more motivation, and experience.

You guys might not know this but I consider myself a bit of a loner. I tend to think of myself as a one man wolfpack. But when my sister brought Doug home I knew he was one of my own. And my wolf pack, it grew by one. So there were two of us in the wolf pack. I was alone first in the pack and then Doug joined in later. And six months ago when Doug introduced me to you guys, I thought wait a second could it be, and now I know for sure I just added two more guys to my wolfpack. Four of us wolves, running around the desert together in Las Vegas, looking for strippers and cocain.

"Many dogfights in Russia are said to be tainted, with steroid-swelled dogs, or animals smeared with wolf fat to confuse or intimidate their foes, or dogs' mouths injected with Novocain to make them fight without hesitation. But Edgar Grigorian, Khattab's owner, said that at this level the matches were clean."
From a dog fighting aarticle. Why would the smell of a wolf frighten the badass fighting dog? Hmmmmmm??? Because it would kill him. It would be like going up against jaws, there are plenty of pics on the web to prove this, but I can't post 'em.

presa canario vs wolf
I can verify several things. I've owned a wolf and I currently own a presa canario. The presa is 160 lbs, and 11 mths old, and I can tell u, he's already far more powerful that my wolf was fully grown. There r several difference. First the presa has a higher pain threshold. The person who made the post on bite force didn't tell the who story. The wolf had a bite force of 400 lbs. The mastiff breeds, which presa canarios r a part of were over 600 lbs. Turkish Kangals also called anatolian shepherds were over 700 lbs of bite force. Mastiff breeds have been bred to KILL WOLVES. I have a Canadian friend who breeds presa canarios to kill badgers and wolverines. I have witnessed it done with relative ease by these dogs. I've also witnessed both these animals whip a wolf's ass. If a presa grabs a wolf, the wolf will wanna quit, not fight. The presa canario would kill a wolf, every time. Superior strength, tenacity, fearlessness, aggression, bite force and a higher pain threshold = a dead wolf.
