Default Strength comparison if girl is much heavier

If a small guy like me (170cm, 62kg, skinny type) does a strength comparison (armwrestling, competititive, lift and carry, legwrestling etc.) with a girl who is in the 80-100kg range, lets say at the same height or a bit taller, do you think the girl is in most cases stronger just because of her weight advantage (although its m vs f?)

Of course all these things depend a lot on techniques, skills, muscles/fat etc., but if you assume both the guy and girl do not work out specifically, are not skilled in wrestling, but just image that they compare their natural strength?

Her legs will be stronger from carrying more weight. Se will crusch you in legwrestling.

A difference of 20 plus kilos, when bodyfat % is roughly equal then yes, in most cases the bigger girl would be stronger or have a higher genetic potential for strength. Look at Olympic weightlifting stats. When you go up in weight high enough you'll see that the bigger girls are lifting more than the smaller men.

It's worth bearing in mind however that natural size (skeletal frame, bone density, muscle fibre, muscle development) and fat are different things.

I've seen plenty of big fat fatties that are much weaker than well trained lighter people. Gymnasts for example have incredible strength and a little 5 foot, 45KG gymnast can be stronger than a 5'10, 100+ KG tub of goo.
