Banteng v Highland Cattle Bull
Banteng - Bos javanicus
The banteng, Bos javanicus, also known as tembadau, is a species of wild cattle found in Southeast Asia. The banteng is similar in size to domestic cattle, measuring 1.55 to 1.65 m (5 ft 1 in to 5 ft 5 in) tall at the shoulder and 2.45–3.5 m (8 ft 0 in–11 ft 6 in) in total length, including a 60 cm (2.0 ft) tail. Body weight can range from 600 - 800 kg. The horns of females are short and tightly curved, pointing inward at the tips, while those of males arc upwards, growing 60 to 75 cm (24 to 30 in) long, and being connected by a horn-like bald patch on the forehead. Banteng live in sparse forest where they feed on grasses, bamboo, fruit, leaves and young branches. The banteng is generally active both night and day, but in places where humans are common they adopt a nocturnal schedule. Banteng tend to gather in herds of two to thirty members.

Highland Cattle Bull
Highland cattle (Scottish Gaelic: Bò Ghàidhealach; Scots: Heilan coo) are a Scottish cattle breed. They have long horns and long wavy coats that are coloured black, brindle, red, yellow, white, silver (looks white but with a black nose) or dun, and they are raised primarily for their meat. They originated in the Highlands and Hebrides Islands of Scotland and were first mentioned in the 6th century AD. The first herd book described two distinct types of Highland cattle but, due to crossbreeding between the two, only one type now exists and is registered. They have since been exported worldwide. They are a hardy breed due to their native environment, the Highlands of Scotland. This results in long hair, giving the breed its ability to overwinter. Bulls can weigh up to 800 kilograms (1,800 pounds).

The banteng's horns look somewhat easier to use (not sure though). But the highland cattle bull's fur is immense, it can probably provide some decent durability. Assuming all that fur over his eyes doesn't impair his visibility, I'd give the cattle bull a small edge.
Banteng horns look more suitable for goring, plus it looks more robust. The banteng gets my vote.
The banteng has bigger horns but its opponent's shaggy coat might give it extra protection.
