Together, they were able to defeat him and inflict great humiliation upon him. Despite being very young, Ace was fully capable of defeating him in combat.
Defeated By Ace And Dadan

Together, they managed to overcome Bluejam.

3 Vice Admiral Draw
Defeated By Ace On Sabaody Archipelago
On the island of Sabaody, Ace ended up encountering a Vice Admiral of the Navy. This was when Ace was moving from Paradise to the New World while on his pirate journey. Vice Admiral Draw was quite powerful, and also a skilled user of Haki, which is something that every marine with a rank of Vice Admiral or higher possesses.
He was able to overpower Ace with his Haki, however, Ace’s talent was such that he awakened the power to use Haki in this fight as well. Using his powerful Armament Haki, combined with the power of his Devil Fruit, Ace was able to absolutely crush Vice Admiral Draw.
Defeated By Ace In The New World
The Bohemian Knight, Doma is known to be a skilled pirate who has made a great name for himself in the New World. As such, this pirate is feared by many individuals and the fact that he was a strong subordinate of Whitebeard himself goes to show the infamy that this pirate possessed.
While Doma appeared to be a loyal underling of Whitebeard, that wasn’t always the case. At one point, Doma likely fought against the Whitebeard Pirates. It was Ace who ended up defeating Doma and his crew all by himself and, because of that, Doma likely ended up joining the Whitebeard Pirates as an ally. When Ace was captured, Doma came with the Whitebeard ally fleet to rescue him.
Defeated By Ace In The New World
By far, the strongest individual that Ace managed to defeat in combat was none other than Jinbe, the powerful Fishman. Ace and Jinbe fought a battle that lasted for 5 days. While many believe this battle to be a tie, that is not exactly the case.
It is absolutely true that both of them collapsed, however, Jinbe was the one who collapsed first and Ace shortly after. What’s more, immediately after Ace collapsed, Whitebeard arrived on the island and Ace had to get up again. As Ace fought against Whitebeard, Jinbe was still collapsed on the floor. Meanwhile, Ace helped his crew escape and surrounded the battlefield with fire so that he could take on Whitebeard all by himself. This all but confirms the fact that Ace actually defeated Jinbe in combat.
