Lions and tigers rarely overlap as these cubs have done, and it is even rarer for them to breed together. There are a few documented cases of Tigons and Ligers however – the term depends on whether the animal’s father was a lion or tiger – though one hybrid was recently put on display in Manchester.
Siberian Tiger or Amur Tiger is the largest extant cat species ever exists on earth with the head & body length of 7 ft 4 inch and can weigh up to 310 kg. It is the second tallest cat in felidae family just after the African lion with the shoulder height of 3 ft 3 inch. If the male lion have the mane which makes him the king then the tiger has the marking of ç, a Chinese character on his forehead which means King. Now the question arises who is the real king of jungle whether it is African Lion or Tiger (Siberian and Bengal Tiger)? As the article progresses you will able to know who is the real king?
The Tiger often wins. The lion does occasionally win these battles, but rarely. It would not be hands down either of them (who could make such a claim?), but all evidence seems to support that the Tiger is the one most likely to win, not the Lion. It makes no difference if this is a captive tiger and lion or wild tigers and lions. When both are captive, they both suffer and benefit from the exact same social pressures. A captive lion might not be able to practice with his brothers, but a captive tiger can't practice hunting and taking down game either. They both have an equal handicap in captivity, and yet the Tiger almost always wins. This would not significantly affect the outcome.
You cannot just assume, they seen a lion and tiger fight, and you cannot use people who seen a lion fight a lion or a tiger fight a tiger, for they are two different scenarios and fight in two completely different ways, you must provide a person who's seen (Specifically a lion fight a tiger). And see-ing one, two or just a few occaisions does not make a person a "Expert" as the link explains an expert is the highest grade that can be achived, so you must provide a person that...
