No he would respect you because you banged his sister and survived.
Unlike most humans, Klingons enjoy pain, it makes them a bit harder to deal with.
Klingon honor was a TNG invention to politically correct the Klingons and make their culture more similar to feudal Japan, in TOS Klingons were the Communists, so were portrayed as sneaky, cowardly, conniving back stabbers and all the other negative traits ascribed to communists in that era. Star Trek isn't about Klingons, Klingons are meant to fail as enemies and there are plenty of examples of Klingons being cowardly and dishonorable.
