He also won a silver medal at the 2010 World Youth Boxing Championship.
In 2011, he beat World No.2 and World Boxing champion DelaklievDetelin of Bulgaria to win Gold at the Belgrade Winner Tournament. With this, Shiva became India’s top pugilist in the 56-kg category.

In 2013, Shiva became the youngest Indian to win a gold at the Asian Confederation Boxing Championship at Jordan. Later in 2015, he won the bronze medal at the World Championships and thus he became only the third Indian male boxer to achieve this feat.
