The Coatbridge fighter is favourite to retain his title at the SECC, and possibly set up an all-tartan tustle with former world champion Scott Harrison before the end of the year.
Burns' last fight was a March victory over Paulus Moses at the Braehead Arena as he retained the lightweight crown he won from Aussie Michael Katsidis, the only man to defeat Saturday's opponent Mitchell.
The Dagenham Destroyer looks set to provide Burns with his toughest challenge to date but the Scot is confident he can emerge victorious in the Battle of Britain bout.
He said: "I have always said that the better the opponent in front of me, the better I am going to perform. I think tomorrow will be another one of those cases.
"I think people will see an improvement from my last fight. The way my last few fights have been going, I have been getting better and better.
"Hopefully I can go in there and do the business. I have been getting a lot more confident and more physically strong.
"I couldn't have been happier with the way the preparations have gone. We started sparring right at the start so I am ready to go for a hard 12 rounds if I need to."
Burns will be roared on by a patriotic home support as the famous Glasgow arena heads for a 10,000 capacity sell-out crowd.
But the champ insists he won't allow any pre-fight hype to get to his head. He said: "I try not to look at it like that. That could just put added pressure on me.
"I am just going in there to do my job, do what we have been training for the last 12 weeks.
"I am 100% ready for this fight, whatever happens on the night, I am going to be ready to deal with it. I just want to get on with it.
"When you look at it that way it does put pressure on you, especially in a fight as big as this. I am just going out to do my job and do what I have been training to do.
"It [the attention] is getting easier to deal with but, me being me, it doesn't bother me. I try not to let the occasions get to me. I am just going out there to do my job."
However, Londoner Mitchell is determined to make sure that he is the man everyone is talking about tomorrow evening rather than the local hero.
The 27-year-old conceded: "I'm very hungry.
"I could say it's probably my last big chance. I've worked like an animal and when I win it, I'll become a household name overnight."
