Klitschko-Austin Fight To Be Cancelled?

Wladimir Klitschko’s IBF Heavyweight title defense against Ray Austin appears to be in jeopardy. A dispute over the gloves Austin must wear for the fight has both sides upset and could force the fight to be cancelled. Because an agreement on which gloves the fighters would use was never reached in the contract, the rules (in Germany) state that the champion picks which brand will be used in the fight. Austin is unhappy, Klitschko appears to be unhappy, and both promoters are unhappy.
Shouldn’t this have been worked long before the night of the fight? I personally don’t see how this fight can be cancelled and don’t think it will.
