Once Ali saw Foreman was clearly gassed in the 8th, he jumped off those ropes and KO'd Foreman. I'm not saying he went into the fight with that plan, but he definitely adjusted mid fight.
This^^^. That's why I consider this fight a good candidate for the playing possum analogy. Ali looked visibly hurt, tired, defeated, and once Foreman gassed, Ali CAME ALIVE and put him down. To me, it's a perfect example.
