Why are people ignoring the fact that Laffitte is Blackbeard's chief of staff, literally the same position as Sabo...?
The only other chief of staff we know besides Sabo and Laffitte is Cabaji, Zoro's fight in the Buggy arc.

He's the no.2 of the Blackbeard Pirates.

Wait.... what if Laffitte is BB‘s first mate and stronger than Shiryu. Why do we assume that Shiryu is the strongest member?
Maybe we will get Laffitte vs Zoro and Shiryu vs Sanji
-Injuried himself out of pure pride
-Dropped Mogura intentionally
-Allowed Luffy to go into gear 4
Not to mention how the whole fight was Luffy going back and forth from the mirror world to regain stamina while Kata lost his merienda. If Kata went full no fucks given then Luffy would be done:goyea:
- Flampe interfered he wouldn't be able to land that hit otherwise so the playing field was evened
- Luffy had already picked up on how to use fs Kata wouldn't be able to prevent him from going g4
- He dropped Mogura not to nerf himself but rely more on his df as Kata could not land single hit before flampe it's obvious he isn't a skilled weapon user
- Last point i can agree with
