The 39 year old dropped the Indonesian with a left early on and despite the visitor getting up he was down again soon afterwards. This time the Indonesian failed to beat the 10 count and was counted out after just over 2 minutes of the first round.
Although his 40th birthday is just around the corner, and he has been suffering with a recurring knee injury, Takehara seemed happy with his performance and was seemingly glad to have gotten through a training camp with no issues.
It's unclear if Takehara will continue to fight on, or whether he will retire on this win, but his team did seem like they would like to get him another title fight down the line. However his camp also stated that if the veteran wanted to retire they wouldn't stand in his way and would respect his wishes either way.
As for Satria Antasena this is a 4th straight stoppage loss and and he is now without a win in over 4 years. He is now 0-3 in Japan and one must question why he continues to fight. He isn't a natural Heavyweight, and really needs to drop down several divisions if he's intending to have any success in his career.
