My money is on Gin, given Ichigo can not use the mask. With speed of Gin's bankai, it will be hard for Ichigo to attack. Its a deadly technique and requires utmost patience. One mistake or lapse of concentration and Ichigo can lose badly.
I always think that as a shinigami Ichigo hasn't much grown. All his recent powerups are courtesy of his hollow powers. So, without his hollow side, Ichigo will probably lose.
Well,Ulquiorra pointed out his shinigami growth when he said that he could finally parry his cero without his mask,not saying following his movement and push him to release...
All this as a result of him fighting GJ.Not saying that Aizen/Kubo themslves explained all Ichigo growth till now :-P
I won't underestimate his shinigami growth cause not only now he is fighting the right arm of the main villain,but also the tier of the shinigamies in play (Aizen,Isshin,OldYama,Urahara,Gin,Yoruichi) is on another new lvl too...

Gin would just own ichigo if we go by logic and no kubo rules.
If we just look at the db stats we know gin is an all round kinda guy so he must know some kido right at least that bakudo 61.
My point right now is that gins bankai is uber fast if gin pulls that 61 on ichigo and then pierces him with his bankai ichigo is toast.
It's obvious that Gin is not even trying,he could have sniped Ichigo from behind and he went out unscatched even if Ichigo used his mask...not saying that he said"is all this the power boost u can take from ur hollowification??RUN..."
Ichigo wins only with R2...it's obvious..
