The movie is coming out regarding the Riggs King march
Just found this article

http://www.tampabay.com/news/humaninterest/account-of-famed-riggs-vs-king-match-heightens-tampa-mob-intrigue/2138446

"Ragano supposedly told the others that Riggs owed $100,000 to gangsters, and that in exchange for throwing the match the debt would be erased. Riggs went on to lose to King with a stunningly poor performance in September 1973, forgoing his usually strict training regimen to party and self-publicize in the months before the match."
"Everybody's bragging and drinking that wine, I can tell the Queen of Diamonds by the way she shines, Come to Daddy on an inside straight, I got no chance of losing this time" -Grateful Dead- "Loser"

Hopefully the disempowering and sexist facts will be redacted in the Hollywood version.
