Could you beat a wolf in a fight with your bare hands?

I reckon I could. I have started doing some squats down the gym recently so my strong shoulders would give me an edge. The protein shakes also get me in the mood for a bit of a wrestle sometimes.
Possibly it would hinge on the surroundings. If we was in Yellowstone Park (or whatever) then it would be tough, but if it was near where I live I would have the advantage. I know all the alleys and roads so could be all sneaky.
If I was allowed to wear my bumbag then I could keep some juice handy for when I get thirsty. Dehydration is a real killer.
Our local zoo used to hand out a wolf fact sheet that informed us that we were more likely to be abducted by aliens, or to have snails rain out of the sky on our heads, than that we would ever be bitten by a wolf.
If the wolf isn't going to bite me, why would I fight it?
Is this one of those things like...who would win? Spider Man or Batman? that kind of "boy" thing.....If you have to fight a wolf I think your only chance would be to gouge out the eyes....

IIRC General survival technique for being attacked by a dogs is to allow it to swallow/bite at your fist, and then stick your hand down/into it's throat. Animals are protective of their eyes unless you're extremely fast/clever it will dodge yoru attack. But they're trying to bite you so they are likely to take your bait of an outreached arm.
Quite how you avoid being mauled by their feet during this process I don't recall. Neither the linke to a direct source.
I could if I had a steak in my back pocket. Throw down the meat and run in the other direction....
Wolves generally don't attack people, unless it's rabid or it would have to be literally starving to death. They can attack from behind by knocking you down and biting into the back of your neck, as you couldn't use your arms to fight it off. My friend has a wolf and I can tell you that it will be difficult. She's a 3yo and still growing and stands on her hind legs just a little over 6'0 and males generally can reach up to 6'4" and they have massive paws. They are extremely quick and very strong and despite your squats could bowl you over if they had a good running charge. My friend is 6'1" and pretty fit and at times he has to use all of his strength just to restrain her if she sees another dog. A lone wolf most likely wouldn't ever attack you unless you corner it because they generally like to avoid people and will run off if they see you.
It depends if this is a story for a book on shifters or you're just saying. They are really cool animals if you understand their nature and understand how to interact with them. They're not like having a dog because they are not domestic per se. You can't have more than one of them because they'll resort back to their pack nature and will be hard to control and they can't be left alone at home at no time by themselves or they will escape to try and find you because they need to be with their pack, which becomes you as the human who keeps them.
