A pit bull is smaller than a cane corso but more fiercely protective. While pit bulls can be aggressive, they normally only fight to defend their owners, due to their extreme loyalty and urge to please. Cane corsos are not friendly toward strangers or other dogs; they are more likely to want to fight a pit bull than vice versa, unless they get too close to the pit bull's owner.
A pit bull can vary in its size range from 14 to 24 inches, weighing between 30 to 80 pounds. They have a tight, stocky build. A cane corso can range from 24 to 28 inches and can weigh up to 120 pounds. They have a well- developed physique. This difference in size and weight would give the cane corso a distinct advantage in a fight; however, size is not the only factor.
When a pit bull feels it is defending its owner, it can be incredibly fierce and unwilling to back down. The pit bull's guardian instinct makes it much more likely that the cane corso would be the one to retreat. A pit bull also has the more powerful jaw pressure for biting; this could also lead to a cane corso fleeing the fight.
