Manuel Oliver Medina, a pioneer in the local tuna industry who came to America from Portugal nearly 75 years ago, died Friday at his Point Loma home at age 93. Born Nov. 6, 1892, in the fishing village of Pico in the Azores Islands, Medina came to San Diego in 1912 after spending less than a year working on a farm in Half Moon Bay, near San Francisco. "It (farming) wasn't what he was used to doing," said his brother, Frank Medina. Manuel Medina was a fisherman.

Manuel Medina makes the first defense of the featherweight championship he won last summer when he meets Tom Johnson tonight at the Forum. Medina became the International Boxing Federation featherweight titlist last Aug. 12 at the Forum when he dethroned Troy Dorsey on a unanimous decision. If recent Forum championship boxing history holds tonight, Medina (39-3), from Tijuana, will be dethroned, too. In the last 12 months at the Forum, the challenger has won six of seven championship fights.

Manuel Medina, a punchless but determined challenger from Tijuana, survived two early knockdowns, picked up the pace of the fight, cut champion Troy Dorsey over both eyes and won a 12-round unanimous decision to gain the International Boxing Federation featherweight championship Monday night at the Forum. Dorsey, defending his title for the first time, started off by knocking Medina on his wallet in both the second and third rounds and seemed headed for a blowout before the crowd of 5,515.
