This is Nolan's Batman vs CW Arrow. Bruce is as shown in the picture, Arrow is wearing his standard green outfit. This is strictly a swordfight, therefore both are equipped with a sword as their only weapon (Bruce also has his gauntlets). The fight takes place on the ice where Ra's trained Bruce in Batman Begins and they start 15 feet apart from each other. Win via death or incapacitation. Both are in-character (Arrow is in his season 1 mindset so he is willing to kill). Who wins and why?
Obviously Batman. Ra's Al Ghul trained him to watch his surroundings. Batman would not make the same mistake twice, so Oliver couldn't break the ice underneath him. In fact, Bruce would probably just do that same thing to Arrow. Bruce almost beat Ra's, had it not have been for that trick he would have. SPOILER: Oliver loses to Ra's in a swordfight in one of the later Arrow seasons, I can't remember which. Good match though.
who cares about nolan batman barely beating a sparring nolan ra's? nolan ra's was in control of the situation and he knew it. and in their rematch batman relied on the suit.
oliver straight up killed a much older, tougher, immortal ra's, and underwent his training initially in swordsmanship under slade.
Batman. He was trained by the League of Shadows. Their primary weapon was the sword. Oliver was stranded on an island for several years but mainly learned how to use a bow and arrow. Batman was trained by Ra's Al Ghul, who has centuries of experience. (He's immortal) If not centuries, decades.

nolan ra's was explicitly not superhuman or immortal in any way
"The Austrian madman is intoxicated with his successes in North Africa and thus he agreed with our suggestion that he invade Russia. It will be folly, and he will fail as the Frenchman before him failed. The war will end soon. Not this year, certainly, nor the next, but soon, and when it does, Hitler will suffer defeat...
...Last night, the woman who is my current consort gave birth to a female. I am a methodical man and I keep records. Thus, I know that I have now sired four hundred and fourteen children, all of them except two female."
- From the journals of Ra's al Ghul, Batman Begins novelisation
