Rayleigh doesn't need his sword to save Pre-TS Zolo from Kizaru.
Rayleigh (he admits he was lucky) directly goes his sword vs. Blackbeard, who was dealing with Hancock + Haki user Kuja warriors + Koby.
And don't forget that BB haters were saying BB has disadvantage against Non-DF user swordsman like Rayleigh, and all of those Haki user Kuja warriors were desperate vs. Blackbeard.
Rayleigh can detect the power levels easily via CoO Haki:
He says ''they'' (Rayleigh + Hancock + Kuja warriors) were LUCKY vs. Blackbeard, and they couldn't win.
While Sentomaru says Kizaru couldn't defeat Rayleigh ALONE. (without Hancock's or Kuja warriors help).
Sentomaru: ''The Dark King stood in our way. Not even uncle Kizaru could get past him. What could we do?''
Blackbeard > Rayleigh + Hancock + Kuja > Rayleigh = Kizaru.
