Child Gon was hitting with hundreds of thousands tons-force by the Chimera Ant Arc: while it's barely comparable to even base Luffy prior to the timeskip, Adult Gon got an even larger boost in power (going from lower mid-tier to pretty much top-tier), and is physically superior to Yupi by a large margin, who in turn is at least physically stronger than pre-skip Luffy via calcs (IIRC).
Luffy's resistance to blunt trauma is going to come in majorly handy.
Adult Gon One-shotted a Pittou
Current Luffy a Pacifista
Close match, however Luffys resistance to blunt damage gives him this one (also his CoA).
[...]to love is to battle, if two kiss
the world changes, desires take flesh
thoughts take flesh, wings sprout
on the backs of the slave, the world is real
and tangible, wine is wine, bread
regains its savor, water is water,
to love is to battle, to open doors,
to cease to be a ghost with a number
forever in chains, forever condemned
by a faceless master;
the world changes
if two look at each other and see[...]
Well, I would think that Gon's nen would bypass Luffy's defense, since it's more like 'shock' damage than directly blunt, but IDK.
Luffy would probably win, considering nothing impressive from Pitou was ever shown that would even put him against EoPre-timeskip luffy.
I was thinking that he'd cut actual diamond, Blackbeard has some way to extract Devil Fruits. Perhaps he'll extract Jozu's and give it to Shiryuu?

That was Netero himself, and prior to him "getting warmed-up" via the personal genoicide of hundreds of Chimera Ants in Nova's dimension room.
A few hundred fodder chimera ants made the difference between him and Pitou?
I'm not trying to disprove this, just trying to debate off what we've been given, and from HxH I'm kinda skeptical going purely by character statements. (Like the one that said that Cheetu wasn't even sound speed when lower characters then him are probably hypersonic)
I'd say it was Netero simply having to prepare himself for killing instinct (he's normally quite the nice fellow, but the Meruem fight demonstrates that he will be very bloodthirsty and aggressive in combat if need be), but also literally needing to flex his muscles around in his old age before he went out and kicked some ass
Adult Gon takes this. He blitzed Pitou, then twoshotted him like fodder. He also impaled Pitou's body with his own arm, so he'd tear through Luffy as well.
Then there's also the fact that Adult Gon was said to be capable of defeating pre-powerup Meruem who tanked tons of Netero's hilbusting Hyakushiki Kannon attacks without a scratch. He also tanked his ultimate attack, Hyakushiki Zero. The same Meruem then went on to survive the Rose point blank which is leagues above anything Luffy can produce.
Last time I looked, Luffy's durability and destructive power was cityblocklevel+. That gets him nowhere against Pitou, Meruem or Adult Gon.
