Pretty sure a big Polar Bear would win.
Ordinarily I think the Polar Bear would simply high tail it. A strange and aggressive reptile not something it would ever have encountered of course but where a Croc is seemingly frightened of nothing as a full grown male. However, what if the Polar Bear is forced to fight for its life in an enclosure situation. It must be remembered that the Tiger Genghis fought off an attack actually in the water and a Zebra has also managed it. Crocs don't really go in for titanic struggles but need to quickly subdue....lactic acid saturation!
Enter the Polar Bear...say 1200 to 1500lbs of him. Quite capable of killing big animals even in the water. Massively protected by thick hair and fat but also fighting for its life.. Probably get around the back as they have known to have done with Walrus in similar titanic encounters. Possibly biting into the neck or chewing off a limb.
Massive swipes to the head being another option to subdue or back off......probably just being enough to bring about a win.

On complete dryland the Bear will win.
In deep water the Croc will obviously win.
The biggest Saltwater Crocodiles can be 23 feet long and 4000 pounds, twice the length and double the weight of any Polar Bear.

and in water. The bears advantage on land is much greater than the crocs in water. Polar bear wins most of the time

Isn't he considered the largest croc ever weighed?
"Lolong (died 10 February 2013) was the largest crocodile in captivity. He was an Indo-Pacific or saltwater crocodile (Crocodylus porosus) measured at 20 ft 3 in (6.17 m), and weighed 2,370 lbs (1,075 kg), making him one of the largest crocodiles ever measured from snout-to-tail."
I definitely think a world record polar bear could be very near that size, maybe a little lighter. But I would favor the Bears superior weaponry and agility. Also what seems to be a strength advantage, as I am far more impressed by the ability for the polar bear to bring up larger prey from the water as oppose to crocs who usually go for much smaller prey than themselves and the times I see them attempt larger prey (cape buffalo, elephant etc) they seem to get over powered quite easily.
