This one is an acceptable assumption and a fair evaluation of the situation. I don't have any objection, but I still don't get the point of saying so. He was defending his beloved brother and telling Escanor not to get cocky for defeating Mel who has such a personality? Proving to the readers thet Mel > Escanor? Doesn't it seem a bit pointless and unnecessary? Proving unwanted and irrelevant information is not something you expect to see in a story unless the writer doesn't know what they are doing. Nakaba isn't a naive writer unfamiliar with the most basic rules.We need to evaluate character's own experience in this argument. Zeldris is not omniscient about him knowing he fought escanor, this evaluation is depending on which version of meliodas which is most likely chapter 246 and so forth or even when meliodas before betraying them. He even implemented "if this is true" as if he cannot believe he would defeat meliodas at his peak, which he THEN describe his demeanor in a fight which toys around with strong opponents. Since zeldris ALSO has sparred with meliodas in the past, so there's a possibility that meliodas also toyed around with zeldris despite zeldris giving his all and zeldris for his affection to meliodas wanting to go serious is a possibility rather than a guaranteed.
