The severity of the gash led many to think the fight should have been stopped.
But of course Fury survived this setback and went on to sensationally hand Deontay Wilder his first ever defeat and win the WBC world title last month.
Wallin, meanwhile, has now been hit by the pandemic sweeping the globe.
CORONAVIRUS CRISIS – BE IN THE KNOW
The 29-year-old, who lives in New York, told Boxing Scene: “For me, it’s been very mild. I had a cough, I was sneezing and I felt like I had a light fever. But I didn’t have a fever, actually. And then, I started feeling better.
“But then, I lost all of my sense of taste and smell. I don’t have any smell still, but the taste is coming back.
“I feel fine. That’s kind of the scary part. I haven’t been feeling bad, but I most likely have it.
“That’s why everybody needs to follow the guidelines and stay inside as much as possible and keep practicing social distancing.
“It can be really serious to some people.”
Wallin has revealed that he has NOT been tested however and is in quarantine in his Manhattan apartment.
He was supposed to fight former world champ Lucas Browne this Saturday in the US, but had to withdraw after suffering a foot injury.
The entire show was then cancelled over coronavirus fears.
