What is the meaning of 味を増した in the following sentence? Context: Two boxers meet after a long time, but Boxer A isn't in a good mood because is worried about his imminent qualifying match. So Boxer B has the following thoughts (I divided the sentence as it is in the manga):
せっかくの再会なのに残念 / そんなに思い詰める程ヤバイ相手なんだ… / より 味を増したキミでも？
My rough translation of it would be
What a shame, now that we met again. Did he get an opponent even stronger than him?, but I don't understand the exact meaning of 味を増した. I am also not sure about より being a comparative there, it is strangely placed in the sentence and there's a little space after it. Thank you for your help!
