If Zoro wanted, he could have killed Hodi right there. True or not?
"Unprepared" is a thing you're adding to the story that wasn't stated or implied anywhere. Its not something that happened, its something you want to believe happened.
Zoro owned Hodi and is stronger than him when he isn't using steroids. Get over that.

If you think back to Thriller Bark. Luffy alone had no chance of defeating Oars, but when he was injected with shadows and became Nightmare Luffy he was on another level.
The same might apply to Hodi. He might go crazy with the steds and end up being some next level villian stronger than even Luffy, which would mean Luffy has to surpass him.
Obviosuly it's just an idea… Keimi said there are people stronger than Hodi didn't she? Could mean Hodi wont be a main villian after all and he's just a pussy that was embarrassed by Zoro in front of his boys.
I agree. All I'm arguing is that Zoro is clearly stronger than Hodi in his normal form.
