Bet more on the turn.
I'd bet half pot on the river. He'll call wider than he'll bet.

You are getting better than 3:1 and for that I price I might call too since KQ/AQ sometimes desperation shove as a bluff and use the river as a scare card since they perceive you as having big pairs you can laydown.
He can have some Q9/J9 hands as well... I think this is a case where from the button he actually does have the straight or two pair a lot. A lot of players do correctly value bet 2pairs here vs. UTG raises. your turn bet should have folded out cheap floats with backdoor equity like A5 of clubs, so most of his hands beat you.
If you ever think he can turn a random 1-pair hand like A8 into a bluff, I'd call. If he's at all a solid type of player, I'd fold.
