Some of his early debut appearances were on 9 March 1988, in Castellon with Curro Trillo and Jose Luis Torres when he was a Novillero. He began in the Escuela Taurina de Valencia, until he went into the public in 1986 in Baeza.
He got married on 25 October 1996 to Paloma Cuevas Díaz, which he describes as the biggest supporter in his life. In 2007 the couple made public they were going to have a daughter.

Ponce has sustained significant injuries on several occasions. Whilst opening the Las Fallas festival in Valencia on 18 March 2014, by bullfighting a bull from the Victorinao del Río farm, he suffered a severe goring which broke his collarbone and several ribs. He was carried off the field by his assistant bullfighter Mariano de la Viña. In 2019 he was left seriously injured after being tossed in the air by a bull, leaving him with torn ligaments in his knee requiring surgery and a 10cm core injury to his buttock. Ponce sustained further injury to his buttock in 2020 when rammed from behind by a bull at El Puerto de Santa Maria.
