what the...

The actual size was just about the size of a quarter. Including the long legs.
I was very mobile and very fast when it wanted to move. The two "boxing gloves" seemed to be pincers. It would occasionally grab the wall and hold to it. When "poked" it would throw them up like a crab. And it would grab hold of object poking it and pull. It made silk and hung from it, tenaciously. It could not be shaken off. All of a sudden it would spin around in what looked like all directions at once in a blur. And then it would instantly stop in same postion it started from. It reminded me of a cartoon character in a fight with an imaginary foe. It disappeared when I went to get my macro lens.
Any suggestions as to the name of this spider? I think it is some type of "Sac" spider that came in close contact with one of the many geckos in the neighborhood. I didn't pull its legs off. I swear.
