The death sentence was outlawed in Starfleet with the exception of General Order 7, so Kirk killing Khan after winning the fist fight would make Kirk a murderer.
Technically Kirk would have to kill (or order to kill) all of Khan's people as well since they were all genetically enhanced superhumans and they all posed a risk. Killing just Khan, especially if they called it self defense, is one thing. Killing them all is mass murder.
Give each other $10, put it on Underhill.
