WATCH: Jose Argumedo stops Jose Jimenez to retain IBF minimumweight world title

You MUST see this! A wild firefight took place in Mexico last Saturday, and Golden Boy has uploaded the whole card!

Jose Argumedo (19(11)-3-1) made his second defense of the IBF minimumweight title after winning it from Katsunari Takayama last year. And boy did he put on a show!

Right from the bell, both fighters went swinging. Both were willing to stand and trade, though Argumedo exhibited much better defense. Jimenez was throwing and sometimes landing, but frankly, he was there to be hit.

In R2, all pretenses to craft were thrown out of the window when both fighter decided to tee off. These guys were raining hard wild hook after wild hook. Jimenez, though was not reacting well to the punishment, and it was only a matter of time before he was going to be stopped. That time came in the following round when Jimenez was knocked down twice. The ref wisely stepped in to save Jimenez from himself.

Golden Boy has made the entire card available for free on YouTube, although this fight starts at the 59:08 mark. Press play to immediately watch the match in all its glory.
