I still think that the lunarian stuff and K&K FB should have been given much more space pushing the end of this duel into the next chapter, but the fight itself is top notch, much better than the crapshow of SvQ (just personal enjoyment, not about powerlevels).
My argument is that you guys are believing Zoro is drained since ages but he never gave up despite he claimed he was out of energies long long ago just like long long ago he claimed the drug subside effects could of kicked in.
You guys are the ones who need to stick their necks out and read between the lines and see the new parallel.
There's no way you can call this an extreme diff. Zoro barely got injured in this fight, and any damage he took was barely impactful at all. He was more concerned about Enma trying to kill him than any injury he got from King lol
Sanji without his maximum speed couldn't avoid getting tagged by Queen, multiple times, so hell no.
With his maximum speed, nothing proofs he is faster, and sure it's not having the benefit of the doubt in a comparison with a massively stronger character. Not to mention that Sanji can hold his maximum speed only for a brief period of time, after that he is exhausted.
Same durability? Don't be ridicolous.
Sanji tanked a hakiless nameless sword attack by someone who isn't even a swordsman.
King easily tanked Zoro's Tatsumaki, the same attack that cut through Kaido's scales and made him vomit blood from the inside and overpowered his tornados and had Big Mom impressed.
King is so much stronger than Sanji.
And it's literally a far better version than he is.
Sanji has fire and physical strength, King has better fire and is physical stronger.
Sanji is fast, King is as fast if not most likely faster, plus he doesn't exhaust quickly like Sanji does.
Sanji is tough, King is tougher and can somewhat nullify attacks that would kill Sanji ten times (like a Post TS upgraded Shishi Sonson).
