Tyson Fury has publicly told his friend Billy Joe Saunders not to retire following the defeat to Canelo Alvarez.
The Brit endured his first loss last month as his corner ended the fight due to a fractured eye socket he suffered in the eighth round.
Last week, Saunders gave his first full interview to White and Jordan on talkSPORT and revealed he’s contemplating retirement.
In response, Fury said to SecondsOut: “I’ve told him that he should recover from his injuries, come back and win another world title. Don’t go out like that.
“He’s been in this game a long time and I believe that Billy Joe needs to fight again for his own inner spirit.
“He doesn’t do it for the money because he’s made a lot of money as well.
“He’ll never be broke, but it’s more than that. It’s about going out on the right causes.
“I think Billy Joe, if he doesn’t fight again, it’ll probably haunt him forever that he went out with a loss.
“An injury loss as well – it hurts more. If you get knocked out or smashed to bits in a fight then you know you weren’t good enough.
“But I believe he was in that fight and it was a close fight up until obviously he got his face smashed in.
“I think he can come back, regroup and win another world title for sure.
“Maybe try and get the Andrade fight.”
