It represents a warning to Hall less than a week before he gets into the ring with Gallen this Friday night.
After clarifying that he had asked Gallen to box to his optimum and not "dance around", de Groot revealed that he got more than he bargained for despite having a deep respect for Gallen's boxing prowess.
"Once I knew the fight was happening, I said to Gallen before the fight, 'give it a go, I don't want you to dance around the ring and slightly tap me,'" de Groot said.
"He laughed and said, 'okay.'
"It's just clubbing blows. When he swings, you can see he's just going for the core and not my head because he probably would've killed me. You feel like you've been hit by a bat.
"They come quicker than you would imagine. One second he's a couple feet away and next minute he's raced up inside of you and gone bang-bang-bang.
"The hit which he knocked me down, it felt like a bat to the ribs. It was brutal and all of his punches are just heavy."

Gallen's devastating blow proved to be too much for the radio host who knew immediately after that something wasn't right. De Groot is yet to find out the results of the scans but a broken rib is a likely result. "This one felt different from the moment he hit it," de Groot said.
"As soon as it connected, I immediately thought 'that is unlike any hit I've ever taken in my life.'
"It's got all the symptoms of a broken rib. It hurts to cough, it hurts to laugh and it hurts to move."
De Groot's assessment that the Gallen blow was "unlike any hit I've ever taken in my life" carries more weight than if it came from most novices, given the radio star's previous boxing training.
When training for the charity fight he boxed in, de Groot entered a brutal school designed to toughen him up before he got in the ring for real.
"I did a charity fight a couple of years ago where you get trained for 12 weeks and fight someone who hasn't fought before," he said.
"In training for that, I did a lot of sparring with a mixed martial artist.
"His concept of training was, 'If I hit you harder than you will ever be hit when you get in the ring, it will all feel quite soft.'
"So, we did a lot of brutal sparring and exercises where he stood alongside me and belted me.
"The purpose was to give an idea of how much the body could take before being knocked down.
"That's why I was comfortable doing it, because I had done a lot of sparring with this MMA guy.
"Unfortunately, no amount of preparation in that sort of training could prepare me for what Gallen had to offer."
