Fisher v Spotted-tail (Tiger) Quoll
Fisher - Pekania pennanti
The fisher (Pekania pennanti) is a small, carnivorous mammal native to North America. It is a member of the mustelid family (commonly referred to as the weasel family), and is in the monospecific genus Pekania. The fisher is closely related to, but larger than the American marten (Martes americana). The fisher is a forest-dwelling creature whose range covers much of the boreal forest in Canada to the northern United States. Names derived from aboriginal languages include pekan, pequam, wejack, and woolang. It is sometimes misleadingly referred to as a fisher cat, although it is not a cat. Males and females look similar. Adult males are 90 to 120 cm (35–47 in) long and weigh 3.5 to 6.0 kilograms (8–13 lb). Adult females are 75 to 95 cm (30–37 in) long and weigh 2.0 to 2.5 kg (4–6 lb). The fur of the fisher varies seasonally, being denser and glossier in the winter. During the summer, the color becomes more mottled, as the fur goes through a moulting cycle. The fisher prefers to hunt in full forest. Although an agile climber, it spends most of its time on the forest floor, where it prefers to forage around fallen trees. An omnivore, the fisher feeds on a wide variety of small animals and occasionally on fruits and mushrooms. It prefers the snowshoe hare and is one of the few animals able to prey successfully on porcupines. Despite its common name, the fisher rarely eats fish.

Spotted-tail (Tiger) Quoll - Dasyurus maculatus
Mass -average 3.5 kg (high) 7 kg (15.4 lbs)
The tiger quoll (Dasyurus maculatus), also known as the spotted-tail quoll, the spotted quoll, the spotted-tailed dasyure or (erroneously) the tiger cat, is a carnivorous marsupial of the quoll genus Dasyurus native to Australia. With males and females weighing around 3.5 kg and 1.8 kg respectively, it is mainland Australia's largest, and the world's longest (the biggest is the Tasmanian Devil), living carnivorous marsupial and it is considered an apex predator. Tiger quolls live in a variety of habitats but seem to prefer wet forests such as rainforests and closed eucalypt forest. Tiger quolls are arboreal but only moderately, as 11% of their travelling is done above ground. Prey items eaten by quolls include insects, crayfish, lizards, snakes, birds, domestic poultry, small mammals, platypus, rabbits, arboreal possums, pademelons, small wallabies and wombats.

The fisher seems pretty big at average weights compared to the quoll. So there, it would win. At max weights, the quoll has a 1 kg size advantage if what's said in the OP is correct, and at parity, I'm leaning towards the marsupial for having a more damaging bite.

The Fischer has thicker skin and might be more agile but the tiger quoll has a much stronger bite. I believe it is a toss up between the two.

Agreed. At average weights, fisher. At max weights, quoll. At parity, 50/50.
How much Quoll's bite force ?

Fisher's glow larger than 13lbs...males can double the weight of females.
I can post video evidence of a 10lbs female and have seen a trapping record
of  a 24lb Fisher...
