Battles are won by KO or death.
Round 1- Random Encounter
Round 2- H2H Combat
Round 3- Hannibal has his sword. Joker has a iron pipe.
Rounds 2 and 3 go to Hannibal Lecter. In H2H, he has the edge due his knowledge of anatomy and physiology; he would be able to find weak points with every strike. Sword vs Pipe; Lecter is well trained with his sword. While Joker could wound Lecter; Lecter would be able to deliver killing blows every time (and it would just be a matter of time).
In a random encounter; i have to give it to Joker...Lecter is a cold and calculating man, and he always has a plan for his current situation; he is even very talented at thinking quickly and on the spot. But, in a random encounter with the Joker, Lecter would be too flustered and confused by the raw insanity that is the Joker. Joker would have a lot of fun picking him apart in that round.
Lecter. He is rather underrated character. Now, both Joker and Lecter are extremely smart, good planners and they both are completely insane. But you must consider that 1) Lecter is genial psychiatrist so he would probably understand Joker better than anyone in TDK did, therefore he could better predict Joker's moves. On the other hand Joker could easily underestimate Lecter, consider him as just some guy, and then it would be too late. I mean Joker never even suspected that Bruce Wayne was Batman, so how can he know that Lecter is serial killer? Although it would be fascinating to see intellectual fight between those two - especially if would've played by two excellent actors: Anthony Hopkins and R.I.P Heath Ledger :( .
2) Lecter was able to pull off his plans all by himself, Joker always needed a large group of henchmen, support form mob etc.
3) Lecter not only knows anatomy and physiology very well - which allows him to be a better killer - but also was trained in kendo and certainly knows how to use this knowledge in a fight:
