No Spoilers!

This occurs during normal story progression during the end game. The fight is interspersed with story elements. The combat requires Nier to deliver substantial damage quickly. Dark Lance and heavy weapon melee attacks are effective. The boss will can also be lured into running into walls, stunning it. The boss is defeated as the story elements play out. If this occurs within two minutes, the achievement will unlock.

As with similar timed fights, make sure you skip the cut scenes. Accordingly, you might want to fight the boss pair twice--once viewing the cut scenes and the second skipping them. There is no save point just before the fight so you might want to watch the cut scenes while working towards the A ending and going for the achievement while working towards the B ending. This fight recurs for each walkthrough--working towards the A, B, C, and D endings. Nier will be progressively stronger during each walkthrough until he reaches max strength. So, depending on how fast you have been leveling up--a personal choice--you may want to defer getting this achievement for a later playthrough when Nier is at a level where he can more quickly defeat this pair. On the other hand, if you have leveled up Nier rapidly, the achievement can readily be obtained in a first playthrough. If you revert to the last save before this battle, you will have to refight the previous boss(es) in addition to this one.
