At the beginning of the anime, Boruto and Kawaki are seen confronting each other on the stone statues of their predecessors. So if that really happens, who will win?
If Boruto and Kawaki were to confront each other in the present moment, the winner would definitely be Boruto. Boruto has more experience as a shinobi. In addition, he is also the heir of the Uzumaki and Hyuga clans, so he will also inherit some of his power from that. As for Kawaki, although he is very good at fighting and also possesses Karma, he does not have as much experience in ninjutsu as Boruto.
Boruto underwent training at the academy and became a Genin. During that time, he learned how to use and control chakra extremely well. In addition, Boruto also understands the concept of elements to apply directly to ninjutsu. Thus, by the time he reached Genin level, Boruto had mastered many powerful ninjutsu, including the improved Rasengan and the Shadow Clone.
Meanwhile, Kawaki can only increase his strength and combat speed through the Karma seal. It wasn’t until he lived in Konoha that he learned about ninjutsu and from there he began to learn chakra control from Naruto.

In terms of taijutsu, Boruto is still superior to Kawaki. Even as a Genin at the academy, he was skilled enough to be able to solo with other Chunin and Jonin, even defeating them with ease. Kawaki, on the other hand, is so dependent on Karma that if he doesn’t activate it, it’s almost impossible for him to fight. That’s also why during the fight with Garou, if Kawaki didn’t use Karma in time, it would probably be the last time fans saw him appear with Boruto.
Both Boruto and Kawaki possess the seal of Karma. Obviously, Kawaki used it more proficiently than Boruto because he knew about it very early on. However, lately, Boruto is the one who gets turned into Otsutsuki more often. That could suggest that Boruto’s Karma is developing and that it’s entirely possible that he can have more control over Kawaki. Therefore, even in the case that both of them have maximized the power of the seal, Boruto will still be the one who can defeat Kawaki if confronted.
