Given only their abilities as they are described on paper and not based on the feats we see on comic books or film as they have varied wildly throughout the years and different media. They will also only be allowed to use tools and weapons that they carry with them on a normal day, no outside help, no upfront knowledge about the other, no running away to fight another day. This is my first debate on debateart so i want to start with something simple.
While batman has beaten superman and other members of the JL, he has never done it without immense preparation, specially crafted armaments (which he does not normally carry on his person), or outside help. So those feats really do not mater.
The fight does have limitations, which i have listed. Batman is allotted any tools and armaments that he is known to carry on his person on a regular basis. I do not think any of which give batman a "significant" advantage over capt. who is quite adept at blocking, dodging, disarming, and disabling people and technology.
Captain america's incredible reflexes and senses give him the ability to dodge a vast array of projectiles, and his shields ability to stop any and all oncoming impact and other forces that batman could pull from his utility belt. Eventually batman will run out of option and have will have to undergo a purely physical/martial fight which will tire him out, this will give capt. the opening he needs to take batman out.
