The Carl Frampton and Leo Santa Cruz fight is a great fight in any era and at any weight.?At a time of entertaining and wildly popular freak fights, where men walk rampant over weight categories, this clash of two tiny warriors in a bear-pit venue, far from either of their homes, is like an oasis of sense, anticipation and calm in the billion-dollar business of boxing.The days leading to the fight have been thankfully free of the hysterics that dominate most big fights -- the pair have been quietly respectful in public and suitably dismissive in private, which is the way it should be.In short, both fighters, their trainers and their people believe the other boxer has made a mistake in accepting the fight.Santa Cruz is the WBAs featherweight champion -- his third world title -- and is unbeaten in 33 fights. He is taller than Frampton, has a six-inch reach advantage, is an American idol and is two years younger.He has boldly talked of moving up in weight and winning world tiles at three more weight divisions. He is the betting favourite and has dismissed the judgement of the bookies with all the sincerity of a rabid wolf outside a chicken shop. Santa Cruz thinks it is a romp.Frampton has played the professional Irishman in New York for three weeks, opening fetes, pulling pints of Guinness, but more importantly getting used to the terrain, the heat and the sleeping patterns.Life in New York for Frampton and his team, which includes Barry McGuigan and his son Shane, who trains the boxer, has been less hectic than a week on the streets of their beloved Belfast.The fruits of Framptons community labour will emerge once the turnstiles at the Barclays Centre in Brooklyn open on Saturday night -- it will be a home fixture for the Belfast boy and Santa Cruz will be the foreigner.Frampton is also unbeaten, a one-time holder of two versions of the world title at super-bantamweight, a division four-pounds below the featherweight limit.Santa Cruz has avoided Frampton, which is a fact, and Frampton has pursued him from the super-bantamweight division, where they were both champions last year, to the featherweight division.They each moved to avoid the struggles of making the old poundage and to create a bit of distance from all the annoying questions about fighting Guillermo Rigondeaux, the Cuban that nobody wants to fight.They are both telling the truth about the weight struggles and they are equally correct, whether they believe it or not, when they claim that this will be their hardest fight.The tension between the pair and their teams has slowly started to grow the closer the fight gets to the first bell.Santa Cruz has his father, a man battling cancer, with him, and Frampton has Barry McGuigan, a man famous for becoming increasingly involved as the fight approaches.The belt that Santa Cruz holds was owned by McGuigan but that was 30 years ago and 13 WBA featherweight champions ago.I never got the chance to fight in New York, said McGuigan, whose joyous and brutal reign was cut short by a man called Steve Cruz one afternoon in Las Vegas when Wee Barry slowly fried under the desert sun.The sensible thinking is that Santa Cruz is too busy, too accurate and that his height and reach will help him create a lead. Frampton has countered that he has the footwork and the speed to stay in contention from the opening bell and force Santa Cruz to take risks.They both have a point and the opening round is likely to expose any immediate flaws in their rival preparations.There is a chance of cuts, bruising and swellings; the wounds, which could certainly end the action, will only add to a magnificent fight as it unfolds to the delight of the crowd.The verdict: Santa Cruz on points in the narrowest of wins, the type of victory that leads to a second fight and disputes long into the New York summer night.

MINNEAPOLIS -- The Minnesota Twins have cut longtime third baseman Trevor Plouffe, the first significant move by new front office leaders Derek Falvey and Thad Levine.Plouffe cleared waivers and has elected to become a free agent.The 30-year-old was a first-round draft pick of the Twins back in 2004. After struggling to earn a spot as a shortstop, he turned himself into a reliable third baseman with solid power.Plouffe hit .247 with 96 home runs and 357 RBI in seven seasons with the Twins. The move appears to open a spot at third base for young slugger Miguell Sano, who bounced around between designated hitter, third base and the outfield last year.ddddddddddddThird base has always been Sanos preferred position.Plouffe was limited to 84 games last season because of injuries. He batted .260 with 12 homers and 47 RBI.The Twins also outrighted catcher Juan Centeno off the 40-man roster Friday.The team says outfielder Adam Brett Walker has been claimed off waivers by the Milwaukee Brewers.
